March Employee of the Month Announced: Jessica Fernandez, IR/Cath Lab Lead Tech

Jessica Fernandez is our Employee of the Month for March. Jessica is an Interventional Radiology/Cath Lab Lead Tech, a role she took on about a year ago. Her position requires her to have a wide knowledge base of services and processes relating to Interventional Radiology (IR) and SVMC’s Catheterization Lab Departments.

“Jessica has demonstrated a positive attitude even when she is placed in difficult or stressful positions,” says teammate, Wendy Lopez, who nominated her for the recognition. Wendy is a Registered Nurse in the Radiology Department and recognized Jessica for her commitment and dedication to the department. “She shows respect to all staff, is willing to answer any questions the nurses have regarding procedures,” Wendy says.

In her role, Jessica’s clear communication style helps her support and guide the department’s techs and nurses. “She’s instrumental in keeping the department going,” says Director of Cardiac Cath Lab & Interventional Radiology, Torri Lee. “She works very well with the Materials Management team and other nursing and imaging teams to make sure patients are well taken care of.” Jessica helps the department run smoothly by ensuring that the proper equipment and supplies are ordered and ready to go for use in the IR and Cath Lab departments.

Thank you, Jessica, for living out SVMC’s values of compassion, collaboration, accountability, integrity and respect. We are happy to have you on our SVMC team!
