The Incredibles of Healthcare: Armen Mgrditchian, OR Aide

May 16, 2019

To celebrate Hospital & Nursing Home Healthcare Worker Appreciation Month, 1199SEIU is highlighting the incredible work our members do every day to ensure hospital patients and nursing home residents in Florida receive the best care possible.  These dedicated caregivers truly are superheroes. That's why we asked members to nominate their co-workers to be named this year's Incredibles of Healthcare. We received many wonderful nominations (*please note the deadline to submit nonimations has passed). Here's one of those outsanding healthcare workers.

Armen Mgrditchian, an OR Aide at Aventura Hospital & Medical Center, is one of these Incredibles of Healthcare who uses his superpowers to make sure Florida families receive the highest quality of care possible. 

Why are Armen’s co-workers incredible?

“There’s an incredible comradery between my co-workers at the hospital that translates into the highest quality service and care for patients.” – Armen .

Why is Armen incredible?

“Armen is modest and tries to shift any recognition and credit to his team. But he is a superstar at his job and at supporting his co-workers and union.” – 1199SEIU Organizer Nicholas Kojkowski.

Why is an OR Aide job incredible?

“The Operating Room is where the most critical medical procedures in a hospital are carried out, so the job of an OR Aide to keep that space in proper order is incredibly important.” -- Nicholas Kojkowski.

Why is working together in a union incredible?

“Unions have accomplished so much for workers and America. Standing together gives us a voice and strengthens our rights to a safe, fair workplace.” -- Armen.
