The November 2020 Employee of the Month was Sharlotte Palafox, RN.

“After Sharlotte completed her three-year commitment with the International Passport Agency, she joined our team in August 2020 and continued her excellent work in our Dialysis Department. During this time through the end of December, she was the only nurse in our Dialysis Department and had to work long hours every day, and offered to work weekends as well without complaining. Sharlotte also worked with COVID patients, making every effort to keep everyone safe. Along with Biomed and offsite tech support, she works well with them and takes great pride in her equipment to make sure the machines are operating properly for the safety of our patients. Sharlotte loves her job and exemplifies excellence,” the press release continued.

The December 2020 Employee of the Month was Rene Wheeler Cox from Trauma Services.

“Renee has gone above and beyond to assist with the COVID-19 vaccine process. When she was asked if she would be willing to help, her response was, ‘I will do anything I can to help.’ Renee is always willing to do what she can to help our department and hospital. She has been instrumental in getting the vaccine information into NMSIS and has also assisted in administering the vaccines. Without her willingness to help and go above and beyond, we would not have been able to accomplish what we have,” the press release stated.
