She offers great advice when asked and works as a team player. She has built a respectful relationship with the physicians and they depend on her and go to her for information and results. She gives excellent customer service to everyone with focus on the patient and family. Mary should be recognized for her positive attitude, hard work, and for making this a great place to work." In recognition of the award, Ms. Holcomb received an Employee of the Quarter certificate, the parking space of her choice for three months, three e-store vouchers, a gift certificate to the hospital gift shop, her name posted on the Employee of the Quarter wall plaque and acknowledgement in the local media and hospital newsletter.
