Corey Poret, who served as manager of EVS since 2018, was recently promoted to EVS director. In this new position Corey is responsible for maintaining a clean and safe environment throughout the facility, overseeing a staff of more than 100, and managing finances and resources for the department.
Today, he shares why he enjoys working at Woman’s.
What makes Woman’s a great place to work?
I always wanted to be a part of a great organization and I knew that Woman’s would give me the opportunity to make an impact on patients and employees. What I learned was that it’s the people and the relationships you build – your co-workers who support you – that make you truly feel like you are part of a team.
You can’t be successful without a motivated group of individuals. This became obvious during the COVID-19 pandemic when everyone at Woman’s worked together in the best interest of our patients and staff. It was really amazing.
In my new role, I’m looking forward to using my ideas to improve upon the incredible work we’re already doing in the EVS Department. That’s what’s so great about working in healthcare – everything is always changing and you have the opportunity to make improvements along the way.
Who have been your mentors and how have they helped prepare you for your new role?
Our previous director, Johnathan Landor, was a great mentor for me. He taught me the importance of being detail oriented and the value of following up. Our trainer, Gail Harris, taught me the importance of the role of an EVS Specialist.
What advice would you give to someone who is just starting their career?
Be humble and lean on your staff for advice and help. Remember, all leaders don’t have titles and all superheroes don’t wear capes.
