Parkland Health Center’s Chris Long Named Star Service Team Member for June
Parkland Health Center is pleased to announce that Chris Long has been selected as the ICARE Star Service Team Member for June 2020. Chris is a transporter in the Radiology department and has worked at Parkland Health Center for two years.
Chris’s nomination reads in part, “She has become a valuable asset to our Radiology department. She always has a positive attitude and a smile on her face. She takes her job very seriously and actively searches for work that needs to be done. Our department/hospital is very blessed to have her as an employee.”
When asked what she enjoys most about her job, Chris replied, “I love to help and meet new people, and transporting gives me a great opportunity to do that. The people in my department have taught me a lot about Radiology, and the nurses I have worked with are awesome. It’s just a great place to work.”
When asked how she felt upon learning that she was selected for the ICARE Star Service award, she said, “I was surprised but very excited. I don’t do things to get recognition – I do them because I want to. That’s the way a job should be. I consider it an honor that someone nominated me for this award because everyone here deserves it.”
ICARE is Parkland Health Center’s patient experience service initiative, and the acronym represents the following values: Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence.
