When Andre Young began working with BHB, he certainly did not think that he would still be there 35 years later.
After starting out in the Geriatrics Ward for five years, Mr. Young became a porter and then moved into Emergency in the 90s, where he has been ever since. He even worked in housekeeping for a brief period.
“ Once working in the hospital, there are plenty of opportunities to move around; it all depends on what you want to do,” he said. “ There are a lot of jobs that young people can do there, but you have to be people-friendly, maintain your composure and go with the flow.”
Some of the people who have made Mr. Young’s decades at the hospital quite memorable ones are Kareem Richards, Barbara Astwoood and Ronnie Tockett. Some people who pushed him to be the best that he could be his aunt Valerie Arorash and special friend Phyllis Hayward.
Mr. Young has a few more years to go before retiring, but he does not plan to leave the hospital until that time.
TNN management and staff would like to thank Mr. Young for his dedication to his job, his humor and unique personality and congratulate him on 35 years of service.
