It is with great pride and appreciation that we recognize our SageWest Employee of the Month for April, Janet Aro, Surgery Pre-Certification Clerk.

“She is an invaluable asset to our team and our patients as she is always creating WOW with her great attitude, work ethic and team oriented mentality,” one co-worker stated. “We often don’t realize just how much she does for all of us to keep this department running smoothly.”

Janet is often already on top of add-on cases, which we receive very last minute, making sure the patient is set to arrive for surgery without any surprises. She shatters silos by working in many different departments to provide coverage for other staff members.

Janet pays special attention to our patients and their families by setting their minds at ease, whether it’s their concerns of payment or status updates on their loved one who is in surgery. She personally escorts friends and families back to make sure they get where they need to be.

Congratulations Janet and thank you for being a tremendous asset to SageWest, we are lucky to have you on our team!
