What Really Counts
"I try to go above and beyond for at least one person a day," said Food Service Worker Ray Cathey, who has proudly worn his chef's hat in the HCMC cafeteria for almost three years. Ray always meets his daily goal—and then some, by helping hundreds of others in more modest ways. You’ll see him getting a cover for a patient's plate or finding the crushed red pepper for someone whose meal needs a little heat. But Ray knows it's not the numbers that count. It's the effort. And for someone with such a naturally positive and helpful attitude, it doesn’t even take much of that.
