Each month, Urgent Care Hawaii will feature an employee who demonstrates a core value that exemplifies our mission.
Congratulations, Jeannette, on being our Featured Employee for May, 2017!
Jeanette’s journey to UCH reflects a woman with a strong work ethic. Raised in the Philippines, she worked hard to graduate with a BA in Biology and accepted the challenge to continue her education to become a physician. She explains, “I had a mindset on becoming a doctor while in high school. I love taking care of patients and being the first line of care.” In 2003, Jeanette took the opportunity to move to Hawaii even though it meant starting her medical career again. She has worked in various healthcare settings and in September of 2016 we were fortunate that she chose to join our team at UCH. Jeanette quickly emerged as a woman of integrity and a leader.
Jeanette demonstrates her strong work ethic on a daily basis in many ways: she works with integrity, takes responsibility to identify and solve issues, has a focus on quality care, is disciplined and values teamwork.
We asked Jeannette how she takes care of herself, “I get lots of rest, eat a fresh and healthy diet and drink plenty of fluids.” Jeanette admits she gets plenty of exercise at work and by keeping up with her seven-year-old daughter, Kadi.
Thank you, Jeanette, for demonstrating your core value of a strong work ethic at UCH.
