Diagnostic Assistant Joseph Honored as Employee of the Month

Diagnostic Assistant Joseph Honored as Employee of the Month

Diagnostic Assistant Joseph has received North Oaks Health System's Employee of the Month Award for October 2021.

Joseph has belonged to the North Oaks team since 1997. He has worked in many areas, including Environmental Services, Laundry and Radiology Transport. Shortly after North Oaks Diagnostic Center opened in 2004, he accepted his current position of Diagnostic Assistant.

This marks the fourth time that Joseph has received North Oaks Employee of the Month recognition. He was previously honored twice in 2002 and again in 2007.

“Every new day is a chance to commit your time, care and helpfulness to others,” Joseph shares.

A graduate of McComb High School in his home state of Mississippi, Joe lives in Amite City with his wife Bridgett. He loves spending time with his family, which also includes his adult children -- Josephier, Jodiciea and Jarrod -- and grandchildren CJ, 10, Cody, 6, and Casey, 3.

Away from work, you can find Joe enjoying the outdoors, barbecuing, helping his older neighbors or serving as an usher at Turner Chapel AME Church in Roseland.

“Joseph assists our patients and visitors with accessing and exiting the Diagnostic Center, as well as transporting them by golf cart to and from their cars and around campus. He makes each patient feel special and important, and he is a great example of the heart of our health system,” asserts Patient Access Director Melissa Smith.
