Cristiana Hernandez, area technician in the Environmental Services department, joined Outer Banks Health in March, 2022. She has consistently presented herself with compassion, accountability, kindness, teamwork, and safety. Regularly going above and beyond for both team members and patients, Hernandez exhibits great pride in her role as the “keeper of the house” and seeks new techniques to improve her efficiency based on each department’s unique needs. Her team members gave her the name “The Inspector” because she is meticulous, making sure all tasks are done to expectation. Cristiana Hernandez is a shining example of Outer Banks Health’s ICEAST values.
