North Fulton Hospital recognized Mike Broyles, lead engineer for the hospital’s Facility Operations, as its 2011 Shining Star of the Year. The award is given each year to an employee who demonstrates outstanding service in one or more of the following areas: “Talking About Tough Stuff,” “Being Engaged Daily,” “Being Accountable,” “Making Self Valuable,” “Understanding the Vision,” “Being a Good Human Being,” “Building Enthusiasm,” “Telling the Truth,” “Being Engaged Daily” and “Having an Open Mind,” and “Supporting Decisions.”
CEO Debbie Keel called Broyles one of North Fulton Hospital’s “un-sung heroes,” working behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly for staff and patients. His director, Larry Collett, identified Broyles as being a standout in “Being Engaged Daily” because he consistently displays a can-do attitude and provides excellent customer service.
“Mike is a great asset to this facility and the reason this hospital continues to fly,” says Larry Collett, director of Plant Operations for the hospital. “ Mike is a big part of where we are today with the new and modern equipment and helps us to be—in my book—the best darn ship in Tenet hospital fleet.”
Broyles ability to take initiative to solve issues when they arise was also noted by Collett.
“Mike always has unique ideas on solving problems when presented. Recently when we had had bad weather that caused problems with the power, Mike worked very hard to keep this big ship running.”
