Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center joined other healthcare institutions across the United States the week of September 15-21 to celebrate and honor Surgical Technologists and the contribution they make to healthcare teams across the nation. At Claxton-Hepburn we are fortunate to have Surgical Technologist Kelley Evans-Dafoe on our team. A surgical technologist, also known as a scrub tech, is an allied health professional working as part of the team delivering surgical care. Surgical technologists are highly specialized members of the surgical team that possess the knowledge and skills in sterile and aseptic techniques. They are able to anticipate the next move of the surgeon to make the procedure as smooth and efficient as possible. To learn more about Kelley or our surgical team, visit us on Facebook. Your tomorrow is worth defending.
