Congratulations to Brett Brinkley, UT Physicians 2016 Employee of the Year. Brinkley, a cast specialist at UT Physicians Orthopedics, is known for being patient and exceptionally kind with pediatric patients.
“Brett was wonderful with my daughter. He was very patient and even added some glam glitter to her hot pink cast,” wrote one of his nominators. “I am singing Brett’s praises.”
Another parent also wrote about how Brinkley comforted them when their 3-year-old broke her arm. “He spoke to us in a very calm and reassuring manner,” wrote the mother. “He helped us cope with the stressful situation.”
“Brett clearly goes above and beyond to make sure his patients feel comfortable,” said Andrew Casas, COO and Vice President of UT Physicians. “In our clinical practice, we want to exemplify a spirit of caring and a bond between patients and their providers. Brett is a leader in continuing this mission.”
Patients and family members may nominate employees for the Employee of the Month through the Best Employees Recognition Program. Winners are selected by a committee. Those who receive the Employee of the Month are then in the running for Employee of the Year.
