GIDY FANTAY EVS Attendant, Environmental Services Frequent patients with chronic illness and their families are always excited to see Gidy Fantay, because they know she will not only clean their room thoroughly, she will also be a breath of fresh air and comfort during stressful times. She is truly a model of compassion, kindness and respect.

Keri Colio was instrumental in developing the new Richter Family Clinic for Balance Disorders. When she sees a gap, she fills it; she is now recognized in California and nationally as a subject matter expert in using cortical evoked response testing for children with auditory neuropathy who are being evaluated for cochlear implantation.

“I don’t know what we would do without her,” Casey Blalock’s supervisor says. She often arrives at work by 4 a.m. to check in with the night shift. She’s a great staff mentor and advocate for the nursing profession through her commitment to safety and making sure her patients get the best care.
