Kingwood, TX, Oct. 6, 2017 — Kingwood Medical Center’s Cath Lab Assistant Anna Nolozoco was recognized Oct. 4, 2017 as the third Quarter Shining Star. This award is part of Kingwood Medical Center’s employee recognition program that focuses on appreciating those staff members that exemplify the mission of the hospital with every patient every day.
Melinda Stephenson, Kingwood Medical Center’s chief executive officer said, “Our winner this quarter is an employee who touches many hearts. She is a young professional who exemplifies team work, respect, integrity and perhaps most of all; she treats every patient like family.”
Anna works in the Cath Lab Department, where patients are anxious about their procedure, and unsure of what to expect. Her role is to assist the nurses in caring for the patient, but she does so much more than that. According to Jenny Conner, director of cath lab, “Anna is the first to jump in when a patient is critical and more hands are needed to take care of the emergency. She is the last contact for our discharged patients, leaving them with a smile on their face and feeling cared for. Anna exemplifies the mission of HCA. She answers to several bosses and does so with a smile. She is an exemplary employee, demonstrating superior work ethic, loyalty and dedication.”
Anna is currently in school with the intention of becoming a registered nurse and was so humbled by this honor, stating “I am so thankful for the blessing of working alongside my patients, and the wonderful team of professionals at Kingwood Medical Center.”
