Name: Sharon Davis

 

How long have you worked at Parkwest? One year

 

Why do you love working at Parkwest?! I have the opportunity to work in both Critical Care Waiting and Surgery Waiting. I love Parkwest because of the interaction with lots of different people and the feeling of satisfaction of helping those who are worried about their loved ones. It is rewarding when a family member tells me they are grateful for my smile and helping to brighten up their day. A smile goes a long way. When I leave my shift I feel good about the kindness and empathy shown throughout the hospital.
