Magruder Hospital recently held its annual recognition event to honor employees, medical staff and board members for years of dedicated service through the end of 2016.
Highlighting the evening was the announcing of Magruder’s Employee of the Year nominees for 2016. Of those nominated, Brian West, an Aide at Magruder's Fulton Street Cafe, was selected as Employee of the Year. In announcing West's award, Todd Almendinger, President & CEO, shared some comments submitted in his nomination.
“I always see Brian busy finding something to do. He is very respectful to everyone. Brian is kind, helpful, well groomed, has manners and uses them. He will ask even if he doesn’t know you well, “How was your weekend?” and mean it. I find him refreshing and genuinely a good worker. Brian takes pride in his job and wants to do the job, whatever it is, the best he can do. I feel Brian is an asset to our café and all of Magruder.”
