When the COVID-19 pandemic began hospitals across the country were suddenly dealing with supply shortages. At Emanuel Medical Center in Turlock, Doug Roszell as the Clinical Informatics Director was committed to keeping the supply chain flowing as best as possible and his efforts have earned him recognition as a Tenet Hero.
The Tenet Heroes program celebrates individuals who make a meaningful impact within their respective communities that goes above and beyond their daily job responsibilities. Nominated by fellow colleagues, Tenet Heroes exemplify the company’s core values and key tenets of its Community Built on Care.
Roszell was recognized as a Tenet Hero for his dedication and hard work. One year ago, as hospitals were beginning to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, Emanuel was keeping a strong focus on its supply chain management. When asked to take over the warehouse, Roszell stepped up and accepted the challenge without hesitation. He brought his skillset of infrastructure and a data-driven approach to help prevent and resolve any potential issues within the warehouse.
“Doug has inspired us through his actions to make a positive and meaningful difference in our community,” said Lani Dickinson, CEO of Emanuel Medical Center. “We are grateful for Doug’s efforts, selfless nature and commitment to compassionate care particularly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are proud to work alongside him.”
