Each month at Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center, two employees are honored as Employee of the Month – Clinical and Non-Clinical.
For the Employee of the Year Award, staff members were asked to choose among the Employees of the Month from that year.
For 2022, staff members voted for Jamie Stokes, Clinical Employee of the Year and Albert Sanchez, Non-Clinical Employee of the Year.
CEO Ray Hino announced the awards at the holiday staff party held at the Bandon Community Center on Dec. 17.
Employees of the Year receive a cash award and a certificate.
Congratulations Jamie and Albert!
