Paratransit Associate of the Year: Gwen Smith; Hire year: 1999
Gwen has received many patient gratitude calls and letters over the past year. Her vibrant personality goes a long way in helping to make sure all her patients are well taken care of while in her hands. Gwen is our most experienced Paratransit associate. She is usually our “go to” when it comes to training and clearing new associates to work solo.
BLS Provider of the Year: Jason Lindtner; Hire year: 1998
Jason has been a great provider and mentor to many during his time with Cetronia. He has served not only as an EMT, but also in the Communications Center and most recently on the mobile stroke unit. Jason has about 20 years of experience when it comes to emergency services. He has had a very long career being an EMT for Cetronia Ambulance. Because of his experience, Jason routinely will partner with our new Paramedics as they become more comfortable in their new role. Having Jason by your side while you are caring for sick or injured patients gives you an extra layer of knowledge and skill sets that only comes with experience.
ALS Provider of the Year: Chris Sholley; Hire year: 2017
Chris has grown in many areas and has quickly emerged as one of our top ALS providers. He has been faced with many challenging calls where he has performed at the top of his game. We are lucky to have providers like Chris and look forward to what the future has in store for him.
Rookie Provider of the Year: Abigail Darnall; Hire year: 2021
Abigail is eager to learn and has shown her passion for the industry. She came aboard full-time and jumped right into action. She started on a BLS unit and is now on our ALS transport truck.
