SHOUT OUT FROM THE DESK OF GREG PROPS

Sent: Wednesday, May 18, 2022 3:29 PM Subject: Shout out to Gabe Sanchez for his Responder 5 Presentation for MD Anderson om May 18!


This week is Healthcare Technology Management Week (May 15-22, 2022) as defined by AAMI (Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation).

Who knew?


Well, MD Anderson knew and they asked Lone Star to give a presentation for their Facilities Engineers on the inner workings of the Responder 5 Head End, Wiring Diagrams, Troubleshooting, etc.

MD Anderson brought in about 20 people from their campuses and fed them box lunches while Gabe Sanchez gave an outstanding Power Point Presentation, via a Teams Portal and a big screen.


So a Big SHOUT-OUT to Gabe for putting on an excellent presentation, and elevating Lone Star’s reputation in the eyes of the Customer!


Thank you, Gabe!

A big Shout Out to Justo Garza for leading the Project Kick-Off Meeting for the full Nurse Call Replacement at HMH Willowbrook on 5/18.

Justo had an important li


ne-up of Methodist People in attendance (and we all know the Lone Star Attendees were important too)!

Justo’s had good control of the meeting, his Power Point was right on point (pardon the pun) and I appreciate the invitation to attend.

Thanks, Justo!

SHOUT OUT FROM THE DESK OF JUSTO GARZA


I would like to give a shout out to Rey Chapa, Nicole Flores, and Bryan Peltier for going out early Friday morning May 13 (6:00am) to help with the installation of the Staff Terminals at HCA Southeast. Rey and I had to dust off our tools but between the four of us working non-stop we removed temporary cover plates, tested all terminations, installed, programmed, and tested all 34 Staff Terminals. With the shortage of resources we all came together as a team to move forward with the installation. The facility is struggling to find staff for the unit but the sooner we can complete the project we can invoice and get paid for that work.
