"Andrea Bailey put forth a significant amount of effort
and creativity to ensure this year's Medical Laboratory Professionals Week was enjoyable for the entire
department of Laboratory Services. Andrea's actions
create an environment in which everyone feels valued,
respected and supported."

"I can always count on Andrea Bourland to keep the
New Caney clinic running smooth since she is covering
as we are trying to fill the RN position over there. I have
been asking a lot of her and she does everything she is
asked to do which really helps me a lot."

"Mr. Austin is always available to lend a helping hand.
He always has a positive attitude and a genuine desire
to help others. He is patient, level-headed, and an excellent
role model. I am grateful for his direction and help when
I needed it!"
