Thanks for working here this week: Tanner Low, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist

Meet Tanner Low, M.S., CCC-SLP, Speech-language pathologist in Rehabilitation Services. Tanner works primarily at The Legacy and Home Health and Hospice, but also works with Medical Surgical and ICU patients at Campbell County Memorial Hospital. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Disorders, and a Master’s of Science degree in Communication Disorders, both from Brigham Young University. He has worked at CCH for 2 ½ years.

Tanner’s wife is his healthcare hero. She is a registered nurse who worked for both a trauma ICU and outpatient general surgery office while they lived in Utah. Her desire to help people and be the best she can be has always pushed Tanner to do better, particularly as he was going through school.

“Speech-language pathology is a varied field,” says Tanner. “You can encounter speech therapists working with virtually any age group with a variety of disorders. I’m very interested in working with adults and rehabilitating cognition and language when they become disordered following trauma or disease. That progression, from evaluation to discharge, helps me to know I can make a difference.”

When asked about what gives him pride in his work, Tanner says, “I love CCH’s standards of excellence that carry on through all facets of care. I’ve had experiences in the hospital, acute rehab, and home health, and the continuum of care is amazingly seamless. The fact that I’ve been able to see this at work and participate in all stages of recovery makes me appreciate all of the work that goes into helping people get better.”

He especially loves working with all of the therapists and nurses at The Legacy. They all have special skill sets for interdisciplinary care that, when they come together, provide an intricate web of support for all of the needs of the patients and residents.

“Our rehab team especially amazes me”, says Tanner. “The knowledge they collectively possess is deep and makes me feel lucky to be part of such a brain trust for our patients.”

To Tanner, Excellence Every Day means providing the kind of care for our patients that he would feel comfortable giving if the patient’s family members were always in the room.

When he’s not working, Tanner considers himself a bit of a music nerd. He loves to discover, listen to, rank, and critique different kinds of music. He’s partial to electronic, pop, and indie rock music, but will dabble in pretty much everything. He also loves spending time with his wife and children and his friends; playing board games and finding interesting places to eat or shop.

Thank you, Tanner, for taking great care of your patients every day at Campbell County Health. We appreciate all that you do.
