Orthopedic Surgeon and Registered Nurse
Randy & Lisa Lovell
Husband and wife, Orthopedic Surgeon and Registered Nurse, partners in the Lovell Hand adventure. The two met at Blodgett Hospital when Randy was in residency and Lisa was finishing her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Calvin College. Fast forward several years later with 3 kids and a fluffy Bernedoodle, this pair embarked on a bold new vision in healthcare. “We’ve both always believed the patient needed to remain the focus. This, along with major innovative ideas, was the beginning of the Lovell Hand dream.” When not at work you will find them with family at their favorite places – Disney, in the mountains, or on the beach!
