HSHS Medical Group is pleased to award Jeff Ihnen with our July Colleague of the Month Award. Jeff is a radiologic technologist at Priority Care South MacArthur in Springfield, Illinois.
The Colleague of the Month is chosen from nominations submitted by fellow HSHS Medical Group team members. “Jeff always has a smile on his face and is such a friendly and inviting person,” his nominator said. “He is always trying to help patients and makes sure they are comfortable while they wait for the provider to examine them. Jeff has such a positive and upbeat personality, and it’s very clear that he loves what he does, each and every day.”
“I like being a small part of a much larger team of caregivers,” Jeff said. “I really like taking the best quality x-ray films I can and getting them read as fast as possible to keep the patient waiting the least amount of time as possible. I try to show each patient respect and empathy no matter what issue they are facing, big or small.”
Jeff’s favorite after-work activities include fishing and golfing. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, family and friends.
