Ambassador of the Month

Maria Trejo | September Ambassador

Maria Trejo, a patient registration team leader, has been named Johnston Health Ambassador of the Month. During a recent presentation, CEO Chuck Elliott said Trejo goes out of her way to make patients and visitors feel welcome as soon as they arrive at Johnston Health. “She is kind- hearted and compassionate, and understands the value of customer service,” he says. Four years ago, Trejo out started with Aramark in food services, where she delivered meals to patients. About a year later, she was hired by the hospital as a patient registrar, and last year, was promoted to team leader for her department. “We feel so blessed to have her,” says Cherie Paonessa, who is manager of patient registration. “She cares about patients and coworkers, too. She works to ensure they can be off for family functions, and works extra hours when needed.” Through the ambassador program, Johnston Health recognizes employees who go above and beyond the call of duty. They deliver quality care, foster teamwork and offer excellent service. In addition to a designated month-long parking space, Trejo will receive eight hours of paid time off.
