Al Ertzner Is Methodist Women's Hospital's Employee of the Quarter

Al Ertzner, a paramedic in the Emergency Department, is the Methodist Women's Hospital Employee of the Quarter for the first quarter of 2020. He was honored at a reception on Dec. 13. 

Al was nominated for the honor by a coworker who described him as the "epitome of teamwork and excellence."

"When Al is working, he makes every nurse's day so much better. He keeps current on the needs of the department and is very self-motivated. He will jump in to help on anything that needs to be done. He is able to keep calm in stressful situations, and he is able to explain things in a clear manner to patients and staff. He is always professional and keeps the patient as the focus. I cannot say enough good things about him!"

Congratulations, Al, on being selected the Methodist Women's Hospital Employee of the Quarter!
