Morris Hospital honors secretary as Fire Starter of the Month

Morris Hospital’s Cardio Diagnostics’ Unit Secretary Deb Scuteri-Svab was born to help people.

MORRIS – Morris Hospital’s Cardio Diagnostics’ Unit secretary Deb Scuteri-Svab was born to help people. It’s what gives her a passion for health care and the reason she willingly takes on multiple roles in her job.

Helping others drives her to deliver excellent customer service and makes her a blessing to work with and a blessing to all who know her. For all of these reasons, Scuteri-Svab was selected as Morris Hospital’s December Fire Starter of the Month.

It was her desire to help others that lead Scuteri-Svab, a Morris resident, to her first job right after high school as an aide at Morris Hospital. Eventually, she became a unit clerk on nights before transferring to Cardio Diagnostics, where she became unit secretary.

Over the years, her role and contributions to Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers have evolved. When she discovered the department could use extra help during especially busy times, she offered to take telemetry and holter classes.

Since then, she helps out with EKG testing and holter and event monitors, knowing that the service she provides helps her co-workers and keeps patients from waiting.
