“Medxcel is a fantastic company with great benefits. The people here are great, and we all get along and help each other. Our leadership is excellent, and they provide us with the tools we need to do our job. They are very generous. I can’t think of a better company to work for.”
 

Describe your day-to-day responsibilities.

There are currently six people on my team. We maintain electrical equipment and generators. We also repair clock systems, install new equipment, and repair and maintain indoor and outdoor lighting. We’re currently in the process of upgrading the hospital’s speaker and clock systems, which means twice a year we round to ensure the clocks are all working properly. On the third Sunday of each month we test our generators, and each July we conduct our annual generator test to be sure we’re meeting code requirements.


What has your career been like and how did you arrive in your current role?

I’ve been doing electrical work off and on for about 40 years. I received on the job training and also attended the ABC apprenticeship school in Tulsa. I became a journeyman electrician in 1986 and a licensed contractor electrician in 1988. I came to the hospital as an electrician about 21 years ago. When we transitioned to Medxcel in 2016, one of our leaders had the opportunity to move up into a supervisor position. When his position opened up, I applied and moved up to my current position as Electrician III. I’ve been doing this job since 2017 and I lead our team each day, answering emails and managing our projects and workload.

What are the benefits your team has experienced working for Medxcel?

Medxcel offers us a wide variety of training. Our team has used the firestop training and we have arc flash training scheduled. When we first heard that we were transitioning to Medxcel we were a bit skeptical, but this company is fabulous, and the benefits are great. I can’t think of a better company to work for. Whenever we need something, they provide it. Our leaders are all wonderful, caring people. We all get along great, and this is a fun place to work.


What is the best part of your job?

For me the best part is helping to carry on the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. It’s very important to us and we do our role the best that we can. It’s rewarding to see people succeed and patients get well. Hospitals are a very unique place to work. Not only do you get to see people get better, you play a part in helping to ensure that they have everything they need to do so.


Is there something you’ve learned on the job that you didn’t expect?

I’ve learned the importance of compassion.  Until you work at a hospital, you don’t know the extent of the problems that people may have. They’re all unique and everybody deserves an opportunity to get healed. One specific example comes to mind, and it’s hard for me to talk about. We had a patient who insisted we bring an extension cord to her room. Extension cords are normally not allowed but she was insistent. We questioned the need for it and found out that she wanted to record a video for her baby because she was not going to make it. That broke my heart and we helped her make that video happen. That shows the spirit for caring that surrounds all of us here. We just strive to do better each day and help our patients heal in any way that we can.


Which of Medxcel’s Core Values is most important to you?

All of our values are very important but to me serving with compassion is most important, so Service of the Poor speaks to me. I also value the Wisdom given to us by God so that we can do our jobs to the best of our ability. We join in prayer each morning and inspire each other to do the right thing.


What would you say to someone who asks you if they should work at Medxcel?

I would tell them that Medxcel is a fantastic company with great benefits. The people here are great, and we all get along and help each other. Our leadership is excellent, and they provide us with the tools we need to do our job. They are very generous. I can’t think of a better company to work for, it’s a fun place to work.
