On Monday, our President, John Mendelsohn, M.D. had this to say to each, and everyone of us...
This October I will have been here four years, and to this day I've had no regrets. I had applied for a position here several times before, and was never contacted due to the hundreds of applications our HR department receive on a daily basis..."This recognition is acknowledgement of the outstanding work that you, our 18,000 dedicated employees, do here every day to care for our patients, carry out our research, and to advance our mission in all areas. Credit also belongs to our many volunteers, whether in the hospital or in the community, who actively support our work and, most importantly, to thousands of patients who place their trust in us."
Luckily for me, I didn't burn any bridges with former employers or co-workers, that someone I used to work with at U.S. Oncology referred me to their supervisor. I was granted an interview and eventually got hired.
To know that I am part of a team that is striving everyday to find a cure for this terrible disease, makes it all worthwhile. It is an honor to work for the best cancer hospital in the nation.
