Patricia Huckabay is Employee of the Month

Posted on: July 13, 2017

Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Patricia Huckabay. She is a clerk in the patient registration department and has been employed at Passavant five years. Her nomination from a grateful co-worker read, “Patricia is pleasant and friendly with everyone. She always has a smile. She always goes above and beyond creating a wonderful experience for every patient. She helps wherever needed and does anything without complaint. Patricia often stays when the department is short-staffed and has helped out with all shifts. Recently, she noticed a job that needed to be done. She took the initiative to discover what she could do to help. She followed up on each issue with progress and took time to learn. She also came up with a great idea to add notes to each visit so that everyone could view the work that had been done. Patricia is an asset to Passavant and Patient Registration. We are lucky to have her!” “As a patient registration clerk, I ensure patient insurance and demographic information is up-to-date. I create, update and maintain most outpatient and inpatient visits. In addition, I order laboratory, x-ray and other outpatient tests,” Patricia said. The care and compassion we provide here makes Passavant a fantastic place to work and an even better place to get the care you need,” added Patricia. Patricia resides in Jacksonville with her two children, Kyla and Ava. The Employee of the Month at Passavant receives eight hours off with pay, an Employee of the Month plaque, a close parking space for one month, gift cards for the Cafeteria and Gift Shop, a movie gift card, pen and pencil set, picnic blanket, flashlight/tool kit, Mason jar cup, umbrella, small cooler, lunch sack, drawstring tote, water bottle, notepad, flashlight key ring, coffee mug, and cup.
