  • Employee of the Month

    Asma Salem

    Asma Salem, RN


    A pediatric patient was being discharged to a rehab facility in North Carolina, and the patient did not qualify for medical air transport. Asma did not hesitate to volunteer to travel with the patient and their family. She worked closely with social services, then flew 1300 miles and made a 90-mile van trip to get the patient to rehab. We are so grateful for all Asma does!
