Betty Keane Selected as “Phlebotomist of the Year”
Every year the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science-Iowa (ASCLS-IA) recognizes individuals, whom have been deemed by their peers as showing outstanding service and dedication to their profession, co-workers and patients. Myrtue Medical Center’s Betty Keane was selected as “Phlebotomist of the Year” from ASCLS-IA.
This award serves to recognize the phlebotomists who are both the legs and the public face of the lab. The quality of our lab testing depends a great deal on their skills. Plus a patient’s impression of the laboratory and of their work is mostly determined by his or her interaction with the phlebotomist.
“Betty is truly compassionate to her patients’ needs and provides the highest quality of customer service. She has a natural ability to understand and feel what the patients are experiencing, and she is able to meet their needs effectively. I am proud to have Betty as a Phlebotomist on our Lab team,” said Jason Eckermann, Lab Director at Myrtue Medical Center.
The award will be given at the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science Annual Spring Meeting at the University of Iowa on Wednesday, April 12th, 2017.
