When you think about a hospital, it is likely you think about our fabulous doctors and nurses, but there is an army of engineers behind the scenes to ensure everything is running smoothly and safely. During the ISU Football Game last Saturday, we honored Portneuf’s Materials Management and the hospital Engineering Team.
This group of employees are responsible for maintaining the extensive heating, air-conditioning, refrigeration, and ventilation systems in hospitals, along with supplies and grounds. With winter weather coming, they work tirelessly to keep our parking lot free from snow. This hard-working team makes sure supplies are in the operating rooms, the generators are running, and many other tasks that happen that allow our facility to run smoothly.
The leader of this team, Reed Worley, recently celebrated his 40th Anniversary as an employee at Portneuf Medical Center. Reed started working at the hospital when it St. Anthony Hospital! Congratulations to Reed and the entire Material Management and Engineering Department members for keeping Portneuf Medical Center running safely for our patients, employees, physicians and visitors.
