Robert Derrick, of Raymondville, was recently selected the November employee of the month at Texas County Memorial Hospital.
Derrick is a floor maintenance tech in the housekeeping department at TCMH. He has worked in the department since December 2014.
Derrick was nominated by the staff from the TCMH emergency department, one of the departments where Derrick works.
“Robert is extremely hard working, and he does his job efficiently and with a smile,” said Chris Weaver, registered nurse in the TCMH emergency department. “It’s easy to tell when Robert has been in our department because he does his job so well.”
The plant operations department that oversees housekeeping and floor maintenance at TCMH noted that Derrick’s job at TCMH is actually his second job. Derrick is described as motivated with a strong work ethic.
“Robert works at a saw mill in Raymondville during the day and works at TCMH each evening until midnight,” said Karen Geer, plant operations secretary.
As employee of the month, Derrick received a certificate honoring his achievement; a pin; a special parking place in the TCMH lot; one day of paid vacation; a $50 gift card; and gift certificates to Paws N Claws, D&L Florist; Blissful Nirvana Massage, Wehr Motors and Savor Grill.
A reception will be at the hospital in honor of Derrick, who is eligible for the 2017 TCMH employee of the year award.
