Our Team

Our team at Mount Hope know each and every one of our nursing home residents by name and care for them like they are family.

We are not your typical nursing home. The Mount Hope difference means our staff, many of whom grew up here, take a genuinely interest in what goes on in each nursing home resident’s day-to-day life. We are a small Kansas community, deeply invested in the well-being of each individual. We address concerns of residents and their family with compassion to ensure every resident is not only comfortable, but also well-adjusted and happy in their new home. Mount Hope is a non-profit facility with a hands-on approach that allows us to keep the best interest of our residents at the heart of everything we do.

Christi Moore

Director of Nursing

Christi Moore grew up in Mount Hope, Kansas and during high school, she worked at our nursing home doing laundry and housekeeping and discovered how much she wanted to help others. After going off to college at Butler, she spent nine and a half years as a paraprofessional at Heartspring, and then spent some time at Hutchinson as a Rheumatoid Nurse. Then Christi returned to Mt. Hope and spent a year and a half as a Charge Nurse before becoming Director of Nursing. She and her husband, Justin, have one major thing in common: both of their families owned businesses. Christi’s parent owned and operated a local body shop, and her husband’s family owned and operated a local hotel and café. Christi likes to spend her spare time being a mom to her two girls, working in her yard, and with her husband on home improvements.

Mary Andresen

Life Enhancement Director

Mary has lived in Haven for over 29 years, been married over 22 years, has 6 grown children, and 19 grandchildren. One of her children hasn’t married, so more toddler chasing is on the horizon. Mary attended Hutchinson Community College and received her CNA. She started her healthcare career working for a rheumatologist in the Hutchinson area. She then went on to work with developmentally challenged children as a paraprofessional for several years meeting their unique needs. This gives her a distinct perspective on the needs of our seniors. She serves as the treasurer of Haven Township and is a member of Haven Baptist Church. She owns her own art studio and unwinds by working in her flower gardens.

Mary says, “It is such a privilege to be a member of the staff at MHNC. I love talking to and spending time with each resident, getting to know and love on them is such a treat. My main goal, daily, is to enhance their lives through hospitality and activity. Some days all one needs to do is hold their hand, drink a beverage, and stare out the window. Others, a rousing game of bingo. It is an honor to be chosen by them to do both”!!
