Employee News & Views Editor: October 01, 20134 Comments

It is my honor and privilege to be a part of such a fabulous team of chefs, catering associates, cooks, cashiers, dishwashers, dining on-call operators and room service attendants, managers and supervisors at Community Regional Medical Center’s Food and Nutrition department – which includes staff of the cafeteria (Pistachio’s Café), Outtakes Coffee and Gifts, and Subway.  Together, these folks make up approximately 190 full-time employees with an essential operation of about 100 employees keeping us running every day.

I sincerely appreciate all our staff for what they do and the great strides we’ve made over a year of challenges and change.  Not only do we provide our patients with a culinary experience, we are an integral part in their healing process and we could not accomplish this without the assistance and coordinating efforts of the entire Community Regional staff.  So, thank you Community Regional family and a special thank you to all food service workers for their hard work and contribution to our hospital, patients and staff. What a great place to work! CLICK to view more fun photos on Community Regional Medical Center’s Facebook page.
