Earlier this month, nearly two dozen hospital employees were honored for
295 years of combined service to Humboldt General Hospital.
In all, 22 employees from a wide range of departments gathered in the hospital's
Sarah Winnemucca conference room on Thursday, May 15, to be honored for
five, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 years of service respectively.
Each honoree received a years of service pin, a box of chocolates and a
small bouquet of flowers. The short ceremony followed a delicious lunch
provided by the hospital's kitchen.
Humboldt General Hospital CEO/Administrator Jim Parrish told the gathered
group that he has worked in healthcare for 40 years, at all levels.
"This is the best employee/manager group I've ever worked with,"
he said. "Thank you very much for your efforts and hard work."
Parrish said that medical positions can be tough to fill because of their
highly specialized nature. Once filled, longevity also tends to be an
industry problem, "which makes this kind of gathering all the more
special," he said.
"Our employees have made a commitment to their positions and we are
very grateful for that. Experience makes a huge difference for us."
