October 2020 Employee of the Month!
Mercedes was born and raised in Herington. She did move around a bit, but never found herself far from home. She graduated High School from Centre in 2012 then took CNA classes at Butler in Council Grove shortly after. Mercedes has a 7 year old boy named Christian. He is her pride and joy! In her free time, she enjoys doing any outdoors activities with Christian and her niece, Maci.
Mercedes says, “I started working at the hospital Aug of 2015. I’ve enjoyed every minute of working in Central Supply and Surgery. I can honestly say I love the work I do. Working at the hospital isn’t just a job to me, it’s home. I enjoy my small department and co-workers. We work so well together and I consider them family. I’ve been through many life altering events in my 5 years at the hospital, and everyone at HH has always been so supportive and have done their best to help me in any way they can. I am blessed to be part of such an amazing team.”
Quote from a fellow staff member: “Mercedes is an amazing asset to the hospital team. She is friendly and kind, and always quick to help out wherever necessary!”
Congratulations Mercedes and thank you for all that you do for the organization and our patients!
