“Charles is one of the most loyal employees I have ever had. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for me or this hospital. The answer is always ‘I’m on it Boss!’ If there is a problem, Charles is most likely involved in fixing it. Nothing is outside of his job description and he always goes the extra mile. He always sees the big picture of what needs to be done and is proactive in doing it. I cannot express my gratitude to what he means to me and to this hospital,” Davis said.
