Congratulations to Rick Lazear who was named Soin Medical Center’s May Employee of the Month! Rick works in IS at the hospital.
The Employee of the Month Award recognizes the people you love to work with. These winners show exceptional performance as defined by the network’s Standards of Behavior, live out the network’s values, and demonstrate the healing presence practices outlined in Called to Care. Rick was nominated by a fellow employee, and you can read the nomination story below:
“The perinatal instructors came to me with complaints about the AV equipment in one of our conference rooms at Soin. I have very little experience with it, so I referred them to Rick, our IS support at Soin. It turned out Rick is not over the equipment and therefore had no training for it. However, instead of saying, ‘sorry I can’t help you,’ he took time out of his work-day to make sure everything was functioning properly before he left on Friday evening for the Saturday class. However, they continued to experience problems and contacted Rick again. Rick could have chosen an array of unhelpful responses. Instead he took the time to set up an appointment with the instructor and the equipment representative. He took time out of his day to meet the representative and explain the issue and get the instructor there to help her through the issues she was having with the equipment. Rick could have easily said, ‘I am not the guy’ and leave it at that. Instead, he went above and beyond to get the problem solved.”
