Texas County Memorial Hospital has named Cody Rogers of Houston the January employee of the month.
Rogers is a registered nurse in the emergency department at TCMH. He has been employed at TCMH for just over one and a half years. Rogers was nominated for the award by his supervisor, Jerri Sue Crump, emergency department director.
“Cody is someone that doesn’t have to be asked to do what’s needed,” Crump said. She explained that Rogers does not hesitate to do anything “extra” when he walks into a patient’s room.
Crump noted that Rogers approaches patient care in a calming way, always ensuring that patient safety comes first and patients feel comfortable in his care.
“Cody is a rising star in the field that he has chosen,” Crump said, “He has earned respect from the ER staff along with ancillary departments and is continuously looking to grow his knowledge in his profession.”
Rogers first came to TCMH as a Youth Ambassador. He participated in the program during his junior and senior years of high school.
Rogers was a TCMH Healthcare Foundation Youth Ambassador Scholarship recipient two times. He was also nominated for a DAISY award during his time at TCMH.
As employee of the month, Rogers received a certificate honoring his achievement; a pin; a special parking place in the TCMH lot; one day of paid vacation; a $50 gift card, and gift certificates to Paws N Claws, D&L Florist; Blissful Nirvana Massage, Wehr Motors, Savor Grill and Big Red Car Wash. A reception will be held at the hospital in honor of Rogers.
Rogers is eligible for the 2018 TCMH employee of the year award.
