Hope Harris is the March 2012 Employee of the Month. Hope works as a Security Officer II in the Security Department and has been with All Children's since 2011. Hope was recognized for his Service Excellence by a fellow employee and the entire Emergency Center staff who said:
Hope was posted in the Emergency Center parking lot one night recently when suddenly a vehicle entered the parking at a high rate of speed. The driver exited the vehicle frantically yelling, ‘help, help, he's been shot.' Without hesitation Hope ran inside the Emergency Center to the Triage desk to notify the Emergency Team of the impending situation. The Emergency Center Team quickly responded, providing the assistance immediately necessary and rushing the wounded man to the Trauma Unit. After the wounded man was given assistance, Hope made an effort to talk with the driver, but before he could reach him the driver returned to the vehicle and exited the parking lot at a high rate of speed. What's really impressive is that Hope had the presence of mind to note the description of the vehicle and license plate number. This type of conscientious, smart and thorough security work makes working with Hope a pleasure. He remains calm and focused no matter what he is confronted with.
Hope, thank you for your wonderful Service Excellence and all you do to ensure a secure and safe workplace for our staff, patients and families. Congratulations for receiving the All Children's Hospital Employee of the Month honors!
