Doug Collins of Houston was recently named Texas County Memorial Hospital’s August employee of the month.
Collins has been employed in the maintenance department for nine years.
“Doug has stepped up and put his all into the TCMH clinic in Licking,” said David Rosemann, TCMH environmental services department director, referring to recent clinic refurbishing efforts undertaken by the hospital before the arrival of Dr. Russell Hug, the new TCMH physician in Licking.
“Doug has taken his own time to get additional training to increase the skills he brings to his job,” Rosemann said. “He will bring in his own tool to save the hospital the expense of purchasing a little used tool if we need one and don’t already have it.”
As employee of the month, Collins received a certificate honoring his achievement; a pin; $100 cash; a special parking place in the TCMH lot; one day of paid vacation; a membership in the TCMH Fitness Center; a $50 gift card; a gift certificate to D&L Florist; and CD of the month from KUNQ.
A reception is planned at the hospital in honor of Collins, who is eligible for the 2009 TCMH employee of the year award.
