  • Employee of the Month

    Tandi Wagner, CRT

    Tandi Wagner, CRT

    Respiratory Therapy

    "Tandi truly cares for patients in all aspects! While caring for a patient, she learned he was from Amarillo, was homeless and would soon be discharged (the patient would go home via bus). Tandi also learned the patient didn’t have shoes and was in need of an antifungal cream for his feet. She and her husband bought him both items and ended up driving him to Amarillo upon discharge. They keep in touch with him, and he is no longer homeless and is doing great. Thank you for doing more than just your task at hand, Tandi! "
