Doreen

Clinical Technician
Inova Fairfax Hospital

What brought you to Inova?

I had heard of Inova, and people told me that if I worked there, Inova would help me achieve the things I wanted to achieve. I started off in patient transport, and when I realized I could move to a Clinical Technician position, I did.

What’s it like to work with your team?

The team I work with now is the best. They always try to help you. I came from a very different place, and there were a lot of things I didn’t know. But here, they are able to teach you new things, so that you understand how to get the best results.

What’s the workplace at Inova like?

It’s really a miracle place. Everybody is smiling, from the door to the patient’s bedside. And anytime you need help, all you have to do is ask. Everyone is willing to help you.

What are you most proud of working at Inova?

Recently, my hospital received Magnet recognition. That takes a lot of time, work and dedication. And they gave us all a small badge holder. I showed it to my mom and said, "Look, we’re one of the best hospitals."

How does Inova help you grow in your career?

Inova is very supportive, and they have many programs. I talk to my colleagues and they always say, “Yes, there is a way to do that.” Since I am an employee, Inova is willing to invest in my education. They will help me go where I want to go.
