Spotlight on Employee Service: Georgia Turner

If you hear someone in Unit 600 with an infectious laugh, or perhaps even singing, chances are it’s Georgia Turner.  She currently works as a patient care tech in outpatient surgery, but chuckled when she added that she’s been here so long, she has practically worked in the entire hospital.

“I started here when I had little babies.  Now they have babies and grandchildren.”  When Georgia is not at TMC taking care of her patients, she is caring for her 6-year-old great granddaughter.  “We’re best friends,” she says.

A true people-person, Georgia says it’s the patients who have made her time here so enjoyable.  Barbara Niles, Clinical Nurse Lead, uses the word “consistent” to describe Georgia.  “She is always kind to every patient.  She has a great sense of humor,” she says.  “Other employees look to her for knowledge, experience, and expertise with patient care.”

As Georgia celebrates this milestone, she admits it’s one she still finds hard to believe.  “It went by so fast…just like yesterday, practically.”  Although she doesn’t want to “hang it up” anytime soon, she knows that eventually that day will come….but not until she has the opportunity to work in the new tower.

From all of us here at TMC, thank you, Georgia, for your 40 years of service.
