Nomination forms for Employee of the Month may also be picked-up in the Human Resources Office at either Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford or Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
Employee of the Month - William Sullivan, OR Aide, Surgical Services, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
Bill has a great work ethic and is always helpful and thoughtful when facilitating patient care during endoscopy cases. He goes beyond expectations in caring for our patients. Coworkers note that Sullivan is a resource for housekeepers in the surgical area and that he frequently lends them a hand cleaning rooms, changing linens and empyting trash. He assists the endoscopy team by getting their patients, always treating everyone very kindly. He's a fine example of someone who goes out of their way to make surgical services a positive environment for our patients. He quickly puts patients and their families at ease and knows just how to talk to them about visiting hours, visiting areas and providing for their comforts, often bringing them water and blankets.
Sullivan is proficient at his job and easily anticipates the needs of those he works with. He often recognizes situations that may need rethinking and takes the initiative. For example he may suggest transporting patients in a bed versus a stretcher to provide greater comfort for the patient. He takes the time to prepare for the next day so each day begins smoothly. Coworkers feel there are so many things that could be said about Sullivan, but the most important thing is his willingness to help out in any way he is able at any time.
