My goal is to have a positive impact in my patients’ lives while providing personalized, high-quality health care. I want each patient to feel as if I am taking time to listen and understand their particular needs and their healthcare needs are being met. I believe in building long-lasting and trusting relationships with patients.

Crystal Logsdon, Receptionist
Crystal is a 34-year-old native of Hardin County. She has a beautiful eight-year-old daughter and has worked in the medical field for 10 years.
I consider myself very blessed to call Heartland Woman’s Healthcare home for the last 7 years. The service I provide for the office is very rewarding. I very much enjoy the opportunity to interact with the patients and help them with any task at hand. In this office, we are more than just a team; we are family. We try to take an interest in our patients as people, use their names, have fun with them, and say “thank you.”
Our patients are the most important visitors on our premises. Patients are not dependent on us, we are dependent on them. Patients are not an interruption in our work, they are the purpose of it. Patients are not outsiders in our business, they are part of it. We are not doing them a favor by serving them, they are doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so. We strive to be people who make everyone feel like someone.

After being a stay at home mom for many years I decided to return to college and pursue nursing. Ever since I was young I have always had the desire to be a nurse. I truly believe that nursing is my God given talent. I have a love in my heart for other people and I want to know that at the end of my day that I have made a difference in someone else’s life. I consider it a privilege to be able to care for our patients and I feel blessed to have a job that I truly love.
In her free time Leicha enjoys being outdoors or scrapbooking. Leicha lives in Hodgenville, is married, and has two children, a granddaughter, and a lab named Lucy.
