EMC and DMC recognize Tenet Heroes
Emanuel Medical Center and Doctors Medical Center have named Clinical Informatics Director Doug Roszell, Susan Ybarra, RN, NCCU Shift Manager, and Ricky Villavicencio, RN, Clinical Operations Coordinator, have all been honored by Tenet Healthcare as part of its annual recognition program “Tenet Heroes” for their contributions in 2020.
The Tenet Heroes program celebrates individuals who make a meaningful impact within their respective communities that goes above and beyond their daily job responsibilities. Nominated by fellow colleagues, Tenet Heroes exemplify the company’s core values and key tenets of its Community Built on Care.
Roszell was recognized as a Tenet Hero for his dedication and hard work. One year ago, as hospitals were beginning to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, Emanuel was keeping a strong focus on its supply chain management. When asked to take over the warehouse, Roszell stepped up and accepted the challenge without hesitation. He brought his skillset of infrastructure and a data-driven approach to help prevent and resolve any potential issues within the warehouse.
“Doug has inspired us through his actions to make a positive and meaningful difference in our community,” said Lani Dickinson, CEO of Emanuel Medical Center. “We are grateful for Doug’s efforts, selfless nature and commitment to compassionate care particularly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are proud to work alongside him.”
Ybarra was recognized as a Tenet Hero because of her amazing efforts introducing Honor Walks at Doctors Medical Center to honor organ donors and provide closure for their loved ones and their care teams. Viilavicencio was designated as the hospital’s ECMO program lead and after ten months of planning, training and preparation, Doctors Medical Center launched its life-saving ECMO program.
“Susan and Ricky have both inspired us through their actions to make a positive and meaningful difference in our community,” said Warren Kirk, CEO of Doctors Medical Center. “We are grateful for Susan and Ricky’s efforts, selfless nature and commitment to compassionate care particularly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are proud to work alongside both of them.”
Each year, a smaller group of nominees are inducted into the Tenet Heroes’ Hall of Fame, the company’s most prestigious honor for employees. In addition to being recognized as a Tenet Hero, Ybarra was also selected as a Hall of Fame winner. This year, a total of 24 individuals across the country were named to the Hall of Fame.
