Employee of the Month winners are formally nominated by the client facility, supervisor or a co-worker. They have been nominated because they stand out from their peers and show exemplary service to their practice and patients. Their performance goes above and beyond the facilities’ expectations.

We are hereby honored to announce that the winners of March 2021’s RN and Allied Employee of the Month contests are John Nina and Zarah Mae! Congratulations to these outstanding healthcare professionals!

What do you love most about being an RN? “I love being able to help and meet everyone from all walks of life. I enjoy getting to know them and hearing all kinds of stories. I get to learn from their experiences and get inspired to continue helping more people.” -John Nina

What do you love most about being a PT? “As a physical therapist, I love that I am able to be part of a patient’s road to his/her recovery. Seeing my patients achieve their optimum function is really a reward for me. Since I work with pediatric patients too, I am so delighted to see my patients walk or move on their own, as well as seeing their parents and families getting excited with what their kids can do.” -Zarah Mae
