Island Hospital’s June 2016 Employee of the Month is Environmental Services Housekeeper, Alice Chavez.
Alice received an amazing number of nominations – a total of nine – for Employee of the Month and it became quite clear from her nominations that what sets Alice apart is her ability to anticipate the needs of patients and staff. This is especially meaningful in the fast paced areas that she is assigned, such as the Emergency Department. Alice takes tremendous pride in her work and is truly satisfied in knowing she is presenting a patient with a clean room. She works diligently and with skillful enthusiasm and when she leaves a room, you know she has put her personal best into the presentation. Her co-workers recognize Alice as an optimist and cheerful cleaning powerhouse. “When days are tough I look at Alice and instantly have a smile. I appreciate her and am so glad she is part of the team.”
Since her arrival in 2014, Alice 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, Alice!
