Terrebonne General Medical Center has named Stephen Laker as its January Employee of the Month.
Laker is a 5-year hospital employee. He works as a floor tech in the Environmental Services Department.
TGMC names an employee of the month as 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.
Laker is a caring employee who is always willing to go above and beyond for any department in the hospital. A release issued by TGMC says that he assists family members in need and will gladly help out in any way possible.
He has come in on days off and spends his breaks sitting with family members who are in need of a shoulder to cry on. Laker routinely prays with family members, gets wheelchairs for visitors in need, makes staff members laugh in stressful situations and checks on previous patients.
He is also lauded for his positive attitude.
“When I come to work, it’s show time. I will help fellow employees when and where I can and family members who have loved ones at TGMC,” he said.
