Patient Care Tech Drew Honored as Employee of the Month

Patient Care Tech Drew Honored as Employee of the Month

Patient Care Tech Drew has received North Oaks Health System's Employee of the Month Award for May 2022.

Drew joined the North Oaks Medical Center team in February 2020 as a Central Supply Tech. Ten months later, he joined the Emergency Department team as a Patient Care Tech to gain applicable experience while in nursing school.

“Helping my coworkers’ day run smoothly is my focus. Without a doubt, the best part of my job is the people I work with,” explains Drew. “We all know we have a job to do, and we are all grateful for each other’s contributions.”

Drew graduated from Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management. He shares that he left the construction industry two years ago after working in the field for 15 years. After looking at a number of fields and pursuing different areas of education, his desire to give his life more meaning and value led him to health care and aspirations to become a nurse. Currently, he is working toward that goal by pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Nursing through Southeastern Louisiana University.

Originally from Nebraska, Drew resides in Holden.

In his leisure time, Drew enjoys taking road trips with no agenda or specific destination in mind!

“The fact that Drew’s peers nominated him to receive this award is testament to his teamwork and commitment to them and our shared goal of improving lives for our patients,” asserts Emergency Services Director Eric Neal.
