(EMPORIA, VA) – Troy Watson has been named the Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center (SVRMC) Employee of the Month for June 2015. Mr. Watson, who has been employed at SVRMC since May 2008, is an Engineering Technician in the Engineering Department.

Employees are nominated for demonstrating excellence in one of ten Standards of Behavior highlighted during that month. The highlighted Standard of the Month for June was Responsiveness. Mr. Watson was nominated by his department manager who wrote, “There are many things Engineering is asked to do or to assist with every day, from the toilet that might not be working correctly to being asked to assist with someone’s car that will not start. Troy readily responds to any request for assistance, and always does so in a professional manner. Troy is a hard worker and is dedicated to his job and our organization. He is a go-to guy that is always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. We can always count on Troy to be there when we need him; he answers all of our requests, and offers assistance without being asked to do so. Troy is known throughout the facility, and is respected by his coworkers, peers, SVRMC staff and administration.”

As SVRMC’s June Employee of the Month, Mr. Watson received a certificate, balloons, cookies to share with his co-workers in the Engineering Department, a cash prize and a chance to be selected as SVRMC’s 2015 Employee of the Year.
