Marissa’s knowledge of equipment and vendors has ensured the hospital stocked the right equipment while also restocking and organizing the old storage area.

“She has helped the new director get familiar with the department by training and offering support and guidance,” the nomination continued. “During an environmental issue in the OR, she got on her hands and knees to clean and sanitize the area.

“In short, she goes above and beyond in her role, exhibiting all of the Southern Coos values on a daily basis.”
