“Receiving this award is a huge honor,” said Hodson. “There are a lot of great people that work for McLaren that are also very deserving of this. I think what I enjoy the most is getting to meet new people all the time and making new friends along the way.”

Hodson has been with McLaren Flint for 20 years, all of which have been spent in the Patient Access Department.

“Jennifer is truly a one-of-a-kind employee that the patient access department is lucky to have,” said Mary Everett, manager of patient access. “Jen helped guide staff through the transition of our electronic medical record earlier this year and can help almost anyone out of any registration issue. Jen trains most of our new hires and sets them all up for success. She has perfect attendance and is always dependable. Jen is truly committed to patient care and strives to give patients the best possible experience.”

The Outstanding Employee of the Month candidates are nominated by managers, directors, and McLaren Flint’s executive leadership team. Criteria for nomination are based on the hospital’s mission and core values: contribution to culture and core values, teamwork, going the extra mile, outstanding patient service, performance excellence, and commitment.
