Roy Wooten, who has served as the internal courier-autopsy assistant for pathology & laboratory services for 21 years, is set to retire.

Roy is known by many for his big smile and helpful nature as he rounds throughout the 17th street campus gathering specimen collections and delivering them to the main laboratory for testing.

His teammates in anatomic & molecular pathology love Roy’s innate ability to find something when no one else can. He carries a high attention to detail, ensuring positive patient identification and ultimately, the most accurate patient results.

Roy extends the same dignity and courtesy to deceased patients during autopsy procedures as he does to people who are alive.

Roy is all about teamwork, continually doing his part and going above and beyond whenever the need arises.  By always being willing and keeping an open mind to trying different ways of attaining goals, Roy helped drive better engagement in his work unit.

Roy has also been a dedicated and talented member of the NHRMC Softball League that brought many team members closer together, leading to more productive work relationships.

Roy has participated in several Lean events, offering his perspective to improve workflow and build efficiency.

Roy’s mark will forever be on his department and the organization where he will be remembered for years to come. Please join us in congratulating Roy Wooten on retirement and a vibrant career at NHRMC.
