managing healthcare technologies throughout the organization. Skilled

in servicing more than 4,000 pieces of equipment used to help our patients!
Jason entered a career in health care because he was always interested
in the sciences including biology and anatomy, as well as electronics

We asked Jason what he likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence
every day means to him. Check out his response:
“For me it’s obviously the staff and departments that appreciate
our efforts supporting their day to day operations and allow them to perform
their duties most efficiently. My coworkers are highly skilled, self-starters
with a lot of experience, and combined with the budgetary support to have
spare parts on hand in a rural area keeps our department running smoothly.
Excellence every day is performing our duties to the best of our ability
while maintaining patient safety and good stewardship of the hospital
Thank you, Jason, for helping us take such great care of our patients with
the best possible equipment. We appreciate you.
