Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery winner profile: Lyana Lazaro
Congratulations to Lyana Lazaro for being our 4th Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery winner!
Our 50/50 lottery 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 Lyana to learn more about her role at North York General.
Q: Aside from winning, what do you like about the staff lottery?
A: “I used to work as a nurse when I lived in the Philippines and we didn’t have enough resources, so I know how hard it can be to deliver care to patients without adequate resources. I wanted to help North York General provide better care for our patients, and I knew it would be something I’d feel great about after.”
Q: What’s your role at North York General?
A: “I work as the unit secretary in the operating room. I support day surgery, the endoscopy unit, the operating room and recovery room. I book surgeries for patients, check them in, prepare their paperwork, help them when they need more information, send them to the waiting room and inform their families once they’re done surgery.”
Q: Why did you choose to work at North York General?
A: “I used to live about five minutes away from the hospital and knew that it was one of the best hospitals in the world. I applied every day and it was a great feeling when I finally got hired! To me, that was the true prize.”
