Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Amanda Demien, a phlebotomist in the Laboratory department. She has been a Passavant employee seven years.
A grateful co-worker nominated Amanda for the honor: “Amanda always greets patients and employees with a smile no matter the circumstances. She is always a pleasure to work with. She has a way with the patients that they are always happy to see her, which is rare considering that she is there to poke them! Amanda is so skilled at her job that patients always thank her after she has stuck them. She coordinates with other the care techs and RNs, so we can cluster our care in an attempt to maximize patient rest by only waking them one time. She is an amazing employee!”
In her role as a phlebotomist, Amanda collects blood samples from Emergency Department patients, outpatients and patients on the medical floors. She also assists with secretarial tasks.
Amanda and her husband, John, are the parents of three children, Victoria, Ali and Bailey.
