Sheila Thomas, a front desk coordinator, and Ribi Kurian, a nurse with the 24/7 nurse help line, received the accolade for providing exceptional service.

Each month, a UT Physicians committee selects a recipient for Employee of the Month. Nominations are accepted from co-workers and patients. Patients can nominate employees by filling out a form located on the counter at check-in stations at UT Physicians clinics.

Those who receive the Employee of the Month are then in the running for Employee of the Year.

Thomas was chosen as the Employee of the Month in October 2018. Kurian was selected in April 2018.
