Carmen Gonzalez Is Methodist Women's Hospital's Employee of the Quarter

Carmen Gonzalez, a nursing assistant in the Gynecology Department, is the Methodist Women's Hospital Employee of the Quarter for the first quarter of 2021.

Carmen received two nominations for the award:

  1. "Carmen went above and beyond for my patient. My patient had a fetal demise. NICU brought her the disc of photos, and the patient wanted to see them but had no way to play the CD. Carmen looked everywhere for a computer and a DVD player but could not find one, so she had the great idea of setting up the video in the classroom and arranged for the patient to view. It was the sweetest thing ever."
  2. "Carmen always goes above and beyond every shift that she works. When Martti was down, she translated for a Spanish speaking patient for the physicians, social workers and others. She picked up to work at main campus when they were really down CNAs and represented Women's wonderfully. I have never seen her not smiling!" 

Additionally, department service leader Stephanie Bricker, said: "Carmen performs to the highest standards. She is caring and kind in all of her interaction, whether it be with patients, visitors or other staff. "

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