Lisa was nominated by fellow RNs, Megan Deslatte, Nicole Boe, Annabelle Vicknair and Joni Trepagnier who wrote, “Lisa is a flexible nurse when it comes to her schedule. She is willing to float from her primary position in surgery to help Acute when shorthanded. Lisa is a pleasure to work with and always has a smile on her face. She is willing to do whatever is needed—no task is too big or too small. St. James Parish Hospital is lucky to have a nurse like Lisa!”
When asked for comment, Lisa stated, “I feel truly blessed to be part of such a wonderful organization that not only cares for their employees, but also our community. I am very fortunate to work side by side with amazing people that are not only co-workers, but are like family. I love my career and look forward to helping others for many years to come.”

Reynaldo was nominated by team members Karley Babin, Kelli Donaldson and Derick Matherne, who are registered nurses the ER. They stated, “From the day Reynaldo started, he consistently looked for ways to improve how things are done in the ER. He immediately jumps out of his chair at times of need and does it without us asking so that we can do whatever else is needed. His work ethic is one that can’t be replicated and we are fortunate that he is part of our night shift.”
Reynaldo responded “In the words of Karley Babin, “One for all, all for one.”
