Meet one of our exceptional volunteers.
By Emerald Kampo, student intern
This Volunteer Spotlight recognizes Hussain Sattar. Hussain has been volunteering at Mercy Medical Center since March 2012. Recently, Hussain received the Assisting Clinical Excellence (A.C.E.) Award on December 20, 2012. The ACE Award identifies one individual from an ancillary department who has assisted a clinical department in achieving the top 10 percent in a monthly patient satisfaction survey.
Hussain was presented the award by the Mercy Medical Center (MMC) Emergency Department. The Emergency Department noted, “Hussain is like Radar O’Reilly from MASH. He anticipates our every need – he never needs to be asked to perform any duties.” The Emergency Department also identified that Hussain always has everything done efficiently, promptly and pleasantly.
Hussain states, “I like to volunteer for the public. I like to be around people and volunteer.” When he is not at MMC, Hussain also volunteers at Father Carr's in Oshkosh. When asked what he enjoys doing in his spare time, Hussain replied, “Volunteering or working, and I like to run. Fifteen years ago I did the New York City Marathon for the heck of it.” Hussain’s goal for 2013 is to start his own Management Consultant Company so he can train others to be professionals.
Hussain was asked what he enjoys the most about volunteering at MMC and his response was, “Everything. It’s fast-pace, they're excellent staff, professionals that are dedicated to their jobs and the team work is excellent.” Hussain plans to continue to volunteer at Mercy and the Emergency Department couldn’t be more grateful for him. The Emergency Department stated, “We wish to thank Hussain for all of his hard work and dedication. There are no words to describe how valuable he is to our department.”
