Congratulations to Nicole Howe for being our sixth Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery winner!
Our 50/50 lottery is a great opportunity for staff to participate in something fun and give back to North York General. It’s also an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the dedicated staff that make our hospital such an amazing place. We sat down with Nicole to learn more about her role at North York General.
Q: Aside from winning, what do you like about the staff lottery?
A: The staff lottery is a great way to engage staff and bring attention to the Foundation. I like that half the proceeds support the hospital so we can continue to provide outstanding care for our patients.
Q: What’s your role at North York General?
A: I’m the manager of Patient Food Services. In this role, I oversee the front-line staff who provide food for patients, ensuring they receive the proper food according to their diets. This helps increase patient satisfaction.
Q: Why did you choose to work at North York General?
A: I previously worked at North York General as a Retail Manager, so it was nice to be able to return to a workplace I was familiar with and where I knew that the people were friendly. North York General is a well-respected hospital in the community.
Q: Describe a time when you felt that you really made a difference in a patient’s life.
A: I like to think that I make a difference in patients’ lives on a daily basis. I regularly visit patients at their bedsides and make sure they get the food they’ve requested. I think food can be just as important as medication and therapy for some patients.
Our next Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery draw is Friday, February 14th, and the jackpot stands at $2,776 and counting. Do you want to be the next big winner, like Nicole?
