Parkland Health Center’s Lance Wilkins Named BJC Values Employee for November
Parkland Health Center is pleased to announce that Lance Wilkins has been selected as the BJC Values Employee for the month of November 2020.
Lance is a registered radiologic technologist and has worked at Parkland Health Center for twelve years.
Lance’s nomination reads in part, “Lance goes above and beyond to meet the needs of everyone he encounters. He strives for the very best in everything he does. Lance is a hard worker, humble, loyal, and knowledgeable. It is hard not to like Lance once you have met him.”
When asked what he enjoys most about his job, Lance replied, “I can't really narrow it down to one certain part because there are so many, but I am grateful to be a part of caring for our patients." Radiology is a field that is important to Lance on a personal level. "As a child, I had to have several x-rays, as well as quite a bit of physical therapy. That is what sparked my interest in the medical field,” said Lance.
Upon learning he had been selected as November’s BJC Values Employee, Lance said, “I definitely was not expecting it. It was a great feeling knowing someone took the time to nominate me for employee of the month.”
As part of BJC HealthCare, Parkland Health Center employees exhibit our shared values of compassion, respect, excellence, safety, and teamwork.
