President and CEO of Jacksonville Memorial, Trevor Huffman says he can’t think of a better time of the year to celebrate with this year’s Colleagues of the Month as he feels each one demonstrates the spirit of the holidays every day in their jobs.

Huffman says he’s proud of this year’s recipient. “I’m extremely proud that Eric got it. I mean, I’m proud of all the colleagues of the month, all of them were well deserving. But I can say when you’re in our ER, you see Eric is always smiling and maintaining that positive environment and attitude, even in some very difficult times. So I’m really appreciative of him, his service, and all the great work that our ER is doing.”

Davidson says he is honored to have been named Colleague of the Year. “I was kinda surprised but I’m very fortunate to be given this today. It shows that we really can make a positive impact in everybody’s life every day in our jobs and it shows something with everybody here today.”
