Garrett Zoellner, MT at Memorial Hospital in the Laboratory Department, recently completed his accredited American Medical Technologist (AMT) Medical Technologist (MT) certification by passing his test on July 28, 2021. To be eligible for the test, one must have a Bachelor’s degree plus 2 years of experience as a laboratory technician. Zoellner is now a recognized MT across the country.
In August, the Laboratory Department celebrated Zoellner’s accomplishment with cake and congratulatory praises. He was grateful for the recognition from his co-workers and feels fortunate to have such an awesome and well-educated support group. “If it wasn’t for the people who have helped build up my education of this field over the past 3 years, I would not have been able to do what I’ve done. They have given me the knowledge and foundation needed not only to better myself but to be able to deliver better patient care, which is ultimately what it’s all about.” Nicole Dethrow, Laboratory Administrative Assistant, expresses that the department is very proud of Garrett and what he has achieved, “He is always willing to help out his co-workers and in general is a very genuine and caring person. He is definitely a crucial part of the lab family.”
Memorial Hospital congratulates Zoellner on his achievements and thanks him for being a dedicated member of the Laboratory Team and always striving to learn more to improve the care for those whom he serves.
