Justin Garber, second quarter EOQ

Justin Garber, an RN at SMSH, was chosen Employee of the Quarter for the second quarter of 2015.
PURVIS, Miss. --  Justin Garber was recently named South Mississippi State Hospital’s second quarter 2015 Employee of the Quarter.  He began working at SMSH as an ATTT in January 2014 while completing his nursing degree. Upon passing his nursing exam, Garber moved into an RN position at the hospital.
Co-workers are complimentary of Garber’s compassion citing his concern for the patients’ health and well- being.
“Justin has everything together; his shifts run smooth; his charting and paperwork are awesome,” said a fellow nurse.  “He is a team player and listens to other staff. He is a leader on his shift, and staff members understand what is expected of them.”
Garber, who currently resides in Covington County, is a native of Oak Grove.  He holds an associate degree in nursing from Pearl River Community College, where he was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
“I enjoy seeing patients come in for the first time and watch them change for the better right before my eyes throughout our treatment process,” said Garber.
Prior to obtaining his ADN and coming to work at SMSH, Garber worked as a granite and marble countertop fabrication and installation specialist.
Away from work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, anything sports related, grilling out, and just hanging out with friends and family.
