Stacey Parrish - Quarterly Spirit of Excellence, Morganfield

Portrait of StaceyStacey Parrish has been a Certified Surgical Technologist, Operating Room, at Methodist Hospital in Morganfield since July 17, 2006. She completed all her clinicals at the Hospital before graduating from Madisonville Community College and applied for a job opening soon afterward.

Her duties in the operating room include “maintaining the sterile field and anticipating what the surgeon needs during the case.” The favorite part of her job is working with Vinod Soni, MD, and her fellow employees, who she says have become like family. “It helps to have a staff that works so well together,” she said, “and just knowing that we are helping people get better makes me want to continue to do a good job.”

Parrish works Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and noted she likes working in a small facility where everyone knows one another. “I can walk down the hallway and know most everyone I meet, whether another employee or someone from the community.” Being honored with the quarterly Spirit of Excellence award was “a shock,” according to Parrish, but she is thankful to have received it. “It means a lot that someone noticed the care I give to patients.”

Comments by her nominators:
“She is a key player on our team…great with patients and always goes the extra mile.”

“She helps in three separate departments in the Hospital. She prepares the department for the day to ensure everything is needed and in its place.”

“This employee is very deserving. She strives to do a great job in everything she does. The employee consistently goes above and beyond and truly represents Methodist Hospital’s values and mission. She plays a vital role in every department and in every position.”
