Island Hospital’s February 2016 Employee of the Month is Lauren Mireles RN in Labor and Delivery.
Lauren has a unique ability to inspire those around her to perform to the best of their abilities, whether it is direct patient care, charting, communicating with other providers or identifying patient services outside of the hospital. She has a positive attitude and a passion for education that shines through in her role as a preceptor for nursing students and new employees.
