Wes Turner

Wes Turner, PA
2nd Quarter 2018

Wes Turner has been chosen as Employee of the Quarter for the second quarter of 2018. Wes started his career with WNH in September 2015 and is a Physician Assistant in our Cedar Vale Rural Health Clinic.

Wes was nominated by his peers, an exerpt from his nomination show why: “Wes should be recognized for his excellent dedication and care to each of his patients. He has a great work ethic and attitude. He demonstrates professionalism, positivity and standard care practices. Wes goes above and beyond to provide patients excellent care and compassion.

Wes is a great co-worker and motivates the staff to perform their best. He is such a dependable employee. Wes showed up for work 4 days after having Achilles surgery and saw patients through the pain and tight quarters of being on a scooter for 2 months. The Cedar Vale Clinic and community are fortunate to have someone as knowledgeable and caring to provide medical services to us and our loved ones.” WNH couldn’t agree more!
