CATES: Health care is a true calling

I am of the firm belief that health care is a calling. I truly believe most people who work in the health care field could probably do something else with the same amount of education and training, often less, and probably make more money and work less hours in the process. There is no position in health care that that applies to more than the people who work in environmental services. At the close of National Hospital Environmental Services week, I wanted to say Thank You to the amazing environmental service people who choose to come work in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and the many other kinds of health care facilities every day and keep them clean and safe for the rest of us.
