Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family
and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they
do for this organization.
Say hello to Maria Cortez, a Certified Phlebotomy Technician (PBT) in the
Lab at the Campbell County Medical Group
Main Clinic. Maria earned her PBT at
Casper College, and has worked for CCH since December 2013. For those who don’t
know, phlebotomists are responsible for drawing blood for lab testing
and blood donation.
Maria was inspired to work in health care by her sister-in-law. “I
witnessed firsthand how caring compassionate she was with her patients
and how she went out of her way to make them feel comfortable and at ease.
Also the respect that she had for all of her patients was incredible.
I work hard to follow in her footsteps.” She also recalls times
when her family has received wonderful care. “These individuals
gave my family great care and compassion, and this has stayed with me.
I just hope that I can in some way also make a difference with the patients
I come in contact with.”
For fun, Maria enjoys working on genealogy and studying her family history,
as well as reading, camping, riding bikes, nature walks, and rock hunting
with her family. We asked Maria what she likes most about working for
CCH and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response.
“I love my job, I especially love all the patients that I have come
in contact with and I see them as part of my family. My co-workers are
great people, I know that they will help me if need be. They are like
a family away from home always willing to help one another. Working with
great people has most definitely made an impact on me, and it makes me
want to always go the extra mile, too.
Excellence every day is doing the best that I can, every day, going above
and beyond for others, giving quality care with respect and love. If we
can’t do that, then we are in the wrong profession.”
Wonderful point, Maria. Thank you for your compassionate care to our patients.
We’re proud to have you on our team!
