Meet Comfort C. Eruchalu
Senior financial analyst Comfort C. Eruchalu, MBA, has been with UW Health more than 10 years. She shares her favorite part of working at UW Health, and reveals a few things most people don't know about her.
What brought you to UW Health?
The snow! On a serious note, the reputation and the people who work here. Several years ago, my father was admitted to UW Hospital and also received outpatient care at our clinics. The excellent care he received made me think that it would be a good place to work. Years later, when my siblings persuaded me to relocate to Wisconsin from the Washington DC/Maryland area, I decided to apply for a job at UW Health and have been here ever since.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I am an Evangelist and I preach in churches. Also, I am a Dame (aka Knight) and a registered nurse (BSN) who loves to take care of people with compassion while on medical missions, both here and overseas.
What is your favorite pastime?
I love reading, listening to Gospel music, singing in the choir and dancing. I also enjoy working with youth and mentoring them with encouragement.
What is your favorite part of working here?
I enjoy being part of the finance department and working behind the scenes to help impact patient outcomes through data analysis. My work assists leadership in making timely financial decisions that help keep the organization viable during challenging times, while focusing on delivering excellent patient care. I also like working with good people in an organization that strongly supports the community, not only medically, but also through various outreach and voluntary programs.
If you were granted one wish, what would it be?
To have an extracurricular community center with well-paid teachers/mentors geared towards helping youth be all they can be, irrespective of their background or origin. This quote explains it for me: “The world may think you are only one person - but to one person, you may be their world.” - Author unknown
