As you may know, Medical Solutions has three Clinical Nurse Managers on our internal team to help both Travelers and Clients with any clinical issues that may arise on assignment. Our internal RNs — Amber, Joe, and Lalah — are always available to listen, counsel, and help make every assignment a success.
So, it’s with a heavy heart, yet tons of happiness for him, that the Medical Solutions family wishes Joe B., RN, Alumnus CCRN, a very happy retirement!
Joe came from the On Assignment team, where he started almost 12 years years ago, and has worked from Medical Solutions’ Tupelo office. In addition to all of his amazing work helping Travelers who are on assignment with us, sage advice in Clinical Corner blogs, and contributions to our awesome Traveler Tips slideshow (featuring tips from Joe and active Medical Solutions Travelers), Joe is just a downright sweet, fun, talented person to know. While he’s no stranger to hard work (though not for long!) he lives for family, fun, and boating. He’s been an amazing colleague and resource for our Travelers and we will miss him greatly!
Here are few of the goodbye messages we recently collected for him … We’ll miss you, Joe!
“When I met Joe, I knew right away he was an amazing person. He came striding through the office in his purple polo, speaking with his southern drawl. Joe is extremely knowledgeable, skilled, and confident — without any semblance of arrogance. He has been so pleasant to work with and has taught me tons. He’s by far one of the strongest ER/Flight nurses I have ever had the pleasure to work for and with. He will be missed!” — Amber B., Clinical Director of Nursing
“Joe’s situation is what we all should aspire to — being able to spend time doing the things he loves. Spending time with his grandbabies, traveling, getting some sun, and hanging out on the boat. Joe was one of the only people here at work that understood my obsession with music. His warm, Southern/Chicago personality (and anecdotes) will be greatly missed!” — Brian P., Quality Specialist
“I hope you get to do ALL the things you have ever wanted to try but never had the time or courage to. I hope that you will be exhausted from all of the fun you are having, and I hope you make memories that will last a lifetime! Congratulations, Joe! You will be missed!” — Jackie W., Quality Specialist
“Joe ‘My brother from another mother’ B.! Congrats on the retirement man. Guess you don’t have to use PTO anymore to go on your monthly cruises to Paradise Island. Enjoy your time at your beautiful home and riding around on your boat!” — Brian S., Quality Specialist
“I am truly grateful that I had a chance to work with Joe, and I hope he knows I’m still going to come out to his lake house whenever I want and jam out to AC/DC with him while drinking a concoction whipped up by Josh S. from various liquor bottles in Joe’s kitchen. I am going to miss you big time, Joe!” — Charity C., Career Consultant
“‘Always remember the Badlands.’ Can’t go into details … but he will understand this one.” — Kevin W., Director of Sales
“Joe is welcoming, warm, and full of heart. Just a genuine, good person to the core. He has jumped into many projects and tackled many obstacles. In his wisdom, he has learned to balance his work and personal life and enjoyed both because of it, which I truly admire. Joe, you are one of a kind and we will miss you. More importantly, we are very excited for you and what life still holds in your future!” — Christy J., Chief People Officer
We’ll miss you, Joe! Thanks for the memories 🙂
