MORRIS – Cindy Higgins, of Morris, loves her job as unit secretary on Morris Hospital’s 2 East/Pediatrics unit, she loves the people she works with, and she loves being part of Morris Hospital.
This positive, joyful attitude radiates in everything Higgins does, making her a role model employee who makes a difference for so many. For all of these reasons, Higgins was selected as Morris Hospital’s Fire Starter of the Month for May.
Higgins worked in the medical environment for about 20 years before joining Morris Hospital in 2004 in environmental services where she was recognized as employee of the month twice during her first year of employment.
She transferred to intensive care unit as a patient care technician from 2005-2008 and then left Morris Hospital for a short time before returning in 2011 as 2 East unit secretary.
2 East Charge Nurse Dawn Samaniego appreciates the many contributions Higgins makes and says her positive attitude is infectious.
Morris Hospital’s new 2 East Manager Meagan Rothrock-Magana said from the moment she met Higgins, she could immediately tell she is a self-directed, hard-working employee who maintains a positive outlook every day and is open to change.
For Higgins, being 2 East unit secretary is an honor because she gets to work with an “amazing group of staff” and interact with physicians, patients and their families.
