Collins, Operating Room Technician, has worked at Memorial Hospital since September of 2016. When asked what she likes most about working at Memorial Hospital, Collins replied, “My co-workers! They are always willing to help. I have learned so much from each of them. We are more than just a team, we are family. I love speaking with patients and being able to provide them with great care.”
Her co-workers who nominated her wrote, “Melissa is a wonderful co-worker. She is willing to learn new tasks, flexible with her schedule and offers to help others with call coverage/coming in early or staying late. She shows great respect to other staff and patients and is will to help in other departments when needed due to low staffing.”

Each quarter employees are encouraged to submit “star cards” for their co-workers who go above and beyond in their patient care or team work.
