Island Hospital’s October 2016 Employee of the Month is Rhonda McLaughlin, Administrative Assistant in the Engineering Department.
Rhonda is the glue that holds the Engineering Department together. She adroitly balances the heavy workload of the department with numerous additional duties. Rhonda single handedly fixed the internal communication system, establishing an in depth training program throughout the hospital. Her attention to detail in tracking utility, medical gas and all construction and maintenance costs for the hospital has led to savings across the board. Rhonda has taken on the responsibility for Island Hospital’s phone system, handling it very well. She writes all Infection Control Risk Assessments, contracts and bid packages and tracks every major construction project for the hospital. Her supervisor notes, “We could not be the effective and efficient department that we are without Rhonda.”
Since her arrival in 2014, Rhonda has characterized Island Hospital’s Promise to consistently provide the best customer service to our patients, families, guests and colleagues. Congratulations and thanks for being an inspiration, Rhonda!
