Aureus Medical is happy to announce its Travel Healthcare Employees of the Quarter. Employees are nominated by their Account Managers each quarter. The winners will then be included in the Employee of the Year nominations. Congratulations to all!
Julie Mendicino, Respiratory Therapist
Julie has been awarded the honor of Employee of the Quarter for the Cardiopulmonary and Allied Health Division of Aureus Medical Group. Julie is currently on her 11th assignment with Aureus and has been with us for over three years. She has been asked to extend and/or stay full-time at many of her assignments. She has a great, easy going personality that really makes her stand out, especially during her phone interviews. Julie’s flexibility and willingness to step into difficult situations is one of her top attributes. Julie is definitely deserving of this honor.
Robert Overman, Cath Lab Tech
Robert has been awarded the honor of Employee of the Quarter for the Diagnostic Imaging Division of Aureus Medical Group. Bob is currently on his 22nd assignment for Aureus. He is very loyal to Aureus and always does a great job. He extends at almost every assignment and at the majority he makes it to the year mark. He is always positive and has a great attitude. We are lucky to have Bob on our team!
Lennon Tucker, Medical Technologist
Lennon has been awarded the honor of Employee of the Quarter for the Medical Laboratory Division of Aureus Medical Group. Lennon has worked multiple assignments with Aureus. He was actually the very first traveler (for any department) at one of our managed service clients. He was their first extension as well. Lennon loves his job, creates great relationships with his peers in the lab, and is super easy to work with. He also gets glowing remarks from other travelers. Lennon is a rock star!
Brandon Dipasquale, Physical Therapist Assistant
Brandon has been awarded the honor of Employee of the Quarter for the Rehabilitation Therapy Division of Aureus Medical Group. Brandon has been working for Aureus for a year. He is a great employee and advocate for Aureus Medical while on assignment. He refers other solid travelers to us and goes above and beyond by helping fellow travelers find housing and talks with them about his traveling experiences. Most importantly, he is a fantastic PTA. He is patient care focused and builds great relationships with his patients and their families. Here are some comments about Brandon from the directors at his past assignments:
- “Brandon has been a pleasure. He’s professional, knowledgeable and has a great rapport with staff and patients. We really enjoyed having him.“
- “He is a wonderful guy and will be an asset.”
We are so thankful to have Brandon on the Aureus team and feel he is very deserving of being recognized for this honor!
Glen Yarbrough, RN (OR)
Glen has been awarded the honor of being one of the Employees of the Quarter for the Nursing Division of Aureus Medical Group. Glen is on his 14th assignment with Aureus and has over 18 years of experience as an OR RN. Glen is exactly the type of nurse we want representing Aureus. He is dedicated to his craft and is exceptional at it. His performance evaluations are a true reflection of the quality of work he provides each hospital as well as the difference he is making in the healthcare community. He is always willing to help future travelers by sharing information about housing in each area that is cost friendly and painting a clear picture of the hospital processes. Glen has been fantastic to work with. He shares his stories of work but also his life stories. We have some fun fishing pictures from his last vacation. 🙂 His Account Manager said, “I feel very lucky to have worked with Glen for the last three assignments and look forward to our future assignments together.”
Lawrence (Larry) Watercott, RN (OR)
Lawrence has been awarded the honor of being one of the Employees of the Quarter for the Nursing Division of Aureus Medical Group. Larry is currently on his 18th assignment with Aureus and has worked with us since 2010. Two of his contracts were over a year and he has had 11 extensions. He is very dependable and consistently provides excellent care to his patients. Larry also receives very high performance evaluations from his assignments. Comments from his past clients include:
- “Larry does a great job at our facility.”
- “Lawrence is a ‘self-starter.’ He never calls in sick and is a good worker.”
He is a true asset to Aureus Medical and we are lucky to have him.
