St. Joseph’s celebrates Environmental Services team

BUCKHANNON — St. Joseph’s Hospital recognized its Environmental Services (EVS) team during Environmental Services Week September 11 to 17.

Environmental Services Week is a time to show appreciation for the dedicated EVS personnel that ensure health care facilities across the country are clean, sanitary places for patients, their families and other staff members. With all the challenges and changes the last few years have brought, these staff members have remained resilient in their efforts to protect others from dangerous pathogens.  

Every department at the hospital depends on this staff for the critical, yet often behind-the-scenes work that they do each day.  “Our EVS team does an excellent job each and every day for our patients and visitors,” said Skip Gjolberg, President and CEO of St. Joseph’s Hospital.  “I constantly receive comments saying that our hospital is one of the cleanest hospitals that visitors have ever seen. We are grateful for these unsung heroes and the hard work and commitment to the mission of St. Joseph’s Hospital they embody.”
