Celebrating the Achievements of Nathan Willis!
This month we wanted to highlight the extraordinary career of Nathan Willis, our Regional Director of Facilities Management.
The role of a director of facilities management is complex and touches most aspects of our work environment. For example, it’s Nathan’s responsibility to ensure our patients and staff have access to a functional yet aesthetically pleasing and safe care environment. To achieve this, Nathan must ensure all our facilities comply with local and state safety regulations, including fire safety and utility management.
Additionally, as Director of Facilities Management, he is accountable for effectively using our resources, long-term planning of space allocation and use, construction, and renovations.
Even though this is a demanding position within our company, Nathan consistently demonstrates the best attitude and willingness to help our company grow and succeed.
Nathan is a valued member of our work family and an outstanding member of the community. With his willingness to lend a hand wherever help is needed and his ability to embrace our community’s diversity, he is the type of person we are proud to call a colleague and friend.
