I’d like to start by congratulating our May Blue Violet Award for Nursing Excellence winner Kelly Grink, our July winner Rosia Rivera and our first Salem Oak Ancillary Excellence Award winner James Watson for their dedication and hard work. These recognition programs are a great way to honor the amazing people who work here.
Anyone including nurses, doctors, staff, patients and their families can make nominations. The QR code on posters located throughout the hospital makes nominating someone quick and simple.
I’d like to welcome three new staff members to the SMC Health Physicians ranks: General Surgeon Dr. Agnes Lau, Chris Myers, APN, and long-time associate, and former Chief of Staff Dr. Denis Tavani. Additions such as these make our staff even stronger and more knowledgeable.
You will soon see our medial transport assisting patients throughout the county. The SMC Ambulance Service will transport patients to and from Salem Medical Center.
These additions show our continuing commitment to better serving our community.
Dr. Tammy Torres
Chief Executive Officer
