Employee of the Month
Susie Brown, RN
Susie went above and beyond for her patient who was sad about spending her anniversary in the hospital. Susie took a plain yellow gown, added lace and a bow to make it special, and gave it to her patient. This small gesture made a big difference, and Susie believes it’s moments like these that make nursing special. She took the time outside of work to bring a smile to her patient’s face, showing true dedication.
Attending of the Month
Kenneth Iwuji, MD
Texas Tech Physicians, Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine
When I felt really sick and alone, Dr. Iwuji’s humor and kindness reminded me that there are good people around. I was about to give up after two tough years of sickness, but his caring and determination brought me back. It just takes a Godly soul with a healing touch and sincerity to restore the fight and see it to the end. Thank you so much, Dr. Iwuji.
House Staff of the Month
Ruomei Wu, MD
TTUHSC, Department of Urology
Dr. Wu is a dependable team player who consistently takes on extra responsibilities when needed. Outside of work, she goes the extra mile by spending time with patients, offering counseling and reassurance about their conditions. Thank you Dr. Wu.
Advanced Practice Professional of the Quarter
Eric Madrid, CRNA
TTUHSC, Department of Anesthesiology
Eric went the extra mile for my patient in labor, fixing a problematic epidural and ensuring she was comfortable during the procedure. He patiently explained everything and worked efficiently, providing quick pain relief. It’s rare to see a CRNA go to such lengths for a patient. Eric continued to check on her during and after labor to ensure her comfort.
