POTSDAM - Canton-Potsdam Hospital has named Kevin Hartigan as Employee of the Year.
Hartigan joined CPH in 2006 as patient registrar and switchboard clerk, where his helpful nature and composed demeanor have been valued by patients and visitors over the years.
Kevin is the epitome of an outstanding employee, said Terri Carr, manager of Patient Access. He naturally assumes the lead when necessary and always makes patient safety and satisfaction his first priority. As a member of our front-line staff, he reacts promptly and efficiently to internal codes and is acutely aware of how to follow policies and procedures.
Hartigan is noted as being well-respected by staff and providers alike. He goes above and beyond to ensure those needing assistance receive the best possible experience and holds others up to his high standards. According to Carr, the hospital keeps overhead announcements to a minimum so as not to disturb patients but when we need to make a PO announcement, its very nice to hear Kevins calming voice.
Hartigan was honored with a dish garden, gift certificates, crystal, cake, and the adoration of his colleagues.
