HSHS Medical Group is pleased to award Emily Langan with our December Colleague of the Month Award. Emily is a Medical Assistant for the HSHS Medical Group clinic serving patients 60 years and older in Springfield, Illinois. She has been with HSHS Medical Group since March 2010.
The Colleague of the Month is chosen from nominations submitted by fellow HSHS Medical Group team members. “Emily is always going above and beyond to take care of patients at this clinic. From working on referrals to rooming patients, she is amazing at her job,” her nominator said. “The support that Emily gives to her fellow colleagues is appreciated by everyone here.”
Emily’s favorite part of her job is being able to talk to patients and help them out. She makes it her goal to have a personal connection with each and every patient. “I come to work and make sure I give my best to every patient,” she said. “My guiding principle is to listen to the patient, show empathy for their situation and treat them as if they are my family.”
When away from work, Emily enjoys spending time with her family and crafting.
