Congratulations to John Shifferly from Maintenance! John was honored by throwing out the first pitch on the Adams Health Field at the REV Sports Complex during Opening Day. A coworker said of John: “He continuously goes above and beyond, showing leadership and willingness to help in any way possible. He shows respect to all while in the health network or in the community and this makes him a great asset to the organization.”
Additionally, John and the maintenance team, with the help of EVS, IT and Grounds, were invaluable during the pandemic as they quickly transformed clinical and nonclinical spaces across the network. Over the past 16 months, this team prepped the EMS building for Emergency overflow, transformed the hospital’s third floor three times, outfitted the Woodcrest Red Unit, made temporary signage for our COVID clinics, and many other tasks.
