Gordon Hospital recognizes outstanding employee

Virgie Tobey, medical technologist for Gordon Hospital’s laboratory department, has been awarded Gordon Hospital’s prestigious Extra Mile Award.

This special award was created by members of the hospital’s Employee Engagement Committee to recognize employees who go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. It is awarded monthly to deserving employees selected by the hospital’s directors.

"Virgie is always willing to do whatever she needs to do in the lab to help," said Celia Holt, director of laboratory at Gordon Hospital. "She will help our phlebotomists, as well as working anytime we need her to. She is always looking for projects to do."

Tobey, who has been employed by the hospital for fifteen years, says she is extremely honored to be chosen for the award.

"My parents taught me the value of hard work and dedication," said Tobey. "I was lucky enough to come to the United States where I had the opportunity to excel and fulfill my dreams."

Born in the Philippines, Tobey is described as a selfless and caring employee. "She took one of our new employees, who is also from the Phillipines, under her wing," said Holt. "Virgie helped her get her paperwork and things completed. She always gives 110 percent."

"Luckily, I have a great employer and amazing coworkers," said Tobey.
