Thanks for working here Thursday: Maria Cortez, PBT, CCMG Main Clinic

Maria CarrollCampbell 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!
