Del Rio First United Methodist Church welcomes new Wesley Nurse

Dorothy VogtDel Rio, Texas – Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. has been proud to partner with Del Rio First United Methodist Church to host the Wesley Nurse Program where Dorothy “Dotty” Vogt, RN has faithfully served as a Wesley Nurse for 10 years. Dotty’s devotion to the community, especially the families who often seek much needed assistance through the ministries offered by First United Methodist Church, is paralleled only to her commitment to the mission, vision and values of Methodist Healthcare Ministries. We thank Dotty for her service, and wish her a fond farewell as she takes on life’s next adventure.

Methodist Healthcare Ministries is pleased to welcome Martha “Marti” Faulkner, RN, who will continue serving the community as the new Wesley Nurse at First United Methodist Church. Marti has been a nurse for 16 years and has experience in hospital administration, emergency room nursing, labor and delivery nursing, community nursing, and hospice care – where she discovered an appreciation for holistic care. Marti exudes an outgoing, giving nature and has a passion for working with the underserved. Previously, she founded a homeless ministry with her daughter in her home state of New Mexico.

Marti stated, “It was a God thing, the way this job came about,” after Wesley Nurse District Manager Beverlee Williams came in contact with Marti’s daughter who made the connection for she and Marti. She felt it was a perfect fit.

What Marti is looking forward to the most as a Wesley Nurse is teamwork – working closely with the church and health committee. “I’m excited to have a spiritual team by my side to do such important work in the community,” she said.

We welcome Marti to the Methodist Healthcare Ministries family.

Marti's office is located at the First United Methodist Church (100 Spring Street). Normal office hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (closed daily between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. for lunch).
