Littleton Regional Healthcare Welcomes New Oncology Coordinator
December 28, 2020
LITTLETON, NH - Littleton Regional Healthcare is pleased to announce Littleton-native Kaitlyn (Considine) Red Elk has joined the Oncology, Hematology, and Infusion Center at LRH as the new Oncology/Infusion Coordinator. Kaitlyn joins LRH with several years of Oncology experience.
Kaitlyn was born and raised in Littleton and attended Littleton High School. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from St. Anselm College. Kaitlyn's nursing career began in 2010 when she joined the staff at nearby Cottage Hospital in Woodsville, NH. She then moved to Manchester, NH and worked at Catholic Medical Center. From there, Kaitlyn became a traveling nurse, working in hospitals throughout California. Kaitlyn's background includes working in high-pressure Emergency Departments, serving bedside on intermediate floors, and playing an integral role in developing an Oncology Intensive Care Unit, one of the first of its kind.
Kaitlyn's experience includes the Critical Care Training Program at Stanford Hospital, where she worked in a 33-bed Level 1 Trauma, Transplant, Neuro, and Medical/Oncology ICU. When the ICU ultimately made the decision to divide into 5 individual ICUs, Kaitlyn accepted the role as Medical/Oncology ICU Educator. As Oncology ICUs are still a relatively new concept, Kaitlyn was able to pave the way for others throughout the country. Kaitlyn specializes in oncological emergencies in bone marrow transplants and advanced Leukemia patients.
Returning to Littleton with her children to be closer to family and her aging parents, Kaitlyn looks forward to being part of the community once again and is eager to serve the patients of LRH. Kimberly Force, Clinical Director of Inpatient Services at LRH noted, "Kaitlyn's extensive background and commitment to patient care makes her an invaluable addition. Her clinical skills, combined with her leadership, will ensure the continued success of the program."
