Easton Hospital names employee of the year: 4 things to know

Easton (Pa.) Hospital selected Kelvin Lashley as 2016 Employee of the Year.

Here are four things to know.

1. Mr. Lashley was chosen for the annual honor from six nominations. 

2. He has worked for 196-bed Easton Hospital since 2009 as a nurse in the hospital's telemetry unit.

3. Mr. Lashley was nominated for the award after paying for a discharged patient to take a taxi to the patient's home in New Jersey. While the hospital offered a taxi voucher to the patient, the taxi service would only take the patient to the outskirts of Easton and not into New Jersey. 

4."Kelvin approaches everything with a 'can-do' attitude," his supervisor, JoAnn Garrett, said. "He is a team player with his co-workers and is truly liked by the physicians."
