Terrebonne General Medical Center has named Paula Giles, the Manager of its Central Sterile Processing Department, as its December Employee of the Month.
TGMC names an Employee of the Month each month in an effort to recognize outstanding employees.
Employee of the Month recipients demonstrate outstanding and constant commitment to the well-being of patients, their extended families and staff.
And Giles has been doing that for a long, long time. Her 40th anniversary with TGMC will be in Feb. 2019.
She first started working on St. Joseph Hall in the “old” hospital as an LPN. She later moved into the Surgery Department as a Scrub Tech.
Over time, Giles transitioned to a coordinator role in the Central Sterile Processing Department and has worked her way up to become the manager.
“I have been so fortunate in having this job,” Giles said. “I have seen so many people come and go and many have remained very good friends. What else can you do that allows you rewards of helping people every single day and keeps them safe from potential harm?”
