Double Whammy! More great feedback for one of our nurses…

Posted: & Filed Under: Uncategorized

Its always nice to hear good feedback about our employees.  To hear it twice in a short amount of time from two different facilities is even nicer!  Thank you Josh Beland for going above and beyond in all that you do. After hearing from someone at GBMC how effective Josh was at responding to a code and really taking care of the situation effectively, we heard from Howard County General how much they like him working there.  Josh isn’t working as much at Howard and he is certainly missed.  We were thanked for sending him, that he was the best, they love him, and really miss him. Josh, keep up … Continued
