Local News Outlet Recognizes HHS Team Member

HHS EVS Worker Reggie TysonReggie Tyson, an environmental services (EVS) team member at a Georgia hospital, works tirelessly to make the world a better place. Whether it’s cleaning the hospital entryway or treating someone with an extra measure of kindness, Reggie gives it his best every single time.

His work ethic and positive mindset caught the attention of a local newspaper. He was recently recognized in a featured article for his great attitude that he’s maintained throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s a section from the article:

“A few stanzas from a poem often attributed to Mother Teresa sum up [Reggie Tyson’s] philosophy of life:

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway.

The poem goes on to say:

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final

analysis, it is between you and your God;

It was never between you and them anyway.

Unlike the people mentioned in the poem, anyone who encounters Tyson in the hospital halls does not forget him. ‘Reggie is the epitome of a frontline team member. He is one of the first faces people may see when they enter the building. He loves talking to people and making them feel welcomed,’ says Shawn Jubuisson, director of environmental services.

Beyond ensuring that the hospital entryways are clean, Tyson is a goodwill ambassador. ‘If someone is sad or unkind, it makes me try even harder to be as kind as I can be. If someone doesn’t speak when I greet them, I speak anyway. How do I deal with grumpy people? I put out what I want to get back. I want to be a spirit lifter and make people happy,’ Tyson says.”
