Volunteer of the Month: August 2018

Jerry Ricks

It has only taken 2 years for Jerry Ricks to become the face of the EJGH pharmacy. His ever-smiling presence, attention to detail and willingness to always go the extra mile, (which to Jerry always just seems to be the right thing to do), has endeared him to the entire pharmacy staff but also those who deal with that department. Thank you Jerry for all you do to help make EJGH a truly great hospital.
