Asia has been named a Tenet Hero, with the additional honor of being inducted into the Tenet Heroes’ Hall of Fame.

The Tenet Heroes program celebrates those individuals who make a meaningful impact within their communities that goes above and beyond their daily responsibilities. Nominated by leadership and/or fellow colleagues, Tenet Heroes exemplify the company’s core values and commitment to its mission.

Each year, a select few are inducted into the Tenet Heroes’ Hall of Fame, the Company’s most prestigious honor for employees. This year, 23 individuals or teams were named to the Hall of Fame, including Asia.

Asia was recognized as a Tenet Hero and Hall of Fame winner after showing incredible empathy and genuine kindness while caring for a family that tragically lost two of their loved ones at the same time. The way she made the patient’s family feel comfortable, safe and warm on the worst day of their lives is admirable. Asia showed grace and compassion, making sure to answer the family’s questions and address their concerns during an unimaginable situation.

“Asia is a true inspiration and her actions make a positive and meaningful impact in our community each day,” said Warren Kirk, CEO of Doctors Medical Center. “We are proud to serve alongside Asia, and deeply appreciate her dedication, selfless nature and continued commitment to providing quality, compassionate care to our patients.”
