Merrick Allen was recently named Employee of the Quarter at Covington County Hospital. Allen is a native of Magee, Mississippi. He works as an EMT for Covington County Hospital’s EMS Department.
“What I like best about working at Covington County Hospital is working with lots of caring people,” said Allen. “It’s like being part of a big family.”
In addition to his regular duties as an EMT, Allen has also been responsible for building a customer base, establishing principles of operation, and developing a customer service model for CCH’s new transportation service, Covington Transit. Allen has also provided mechanical services for the hospital’s fleet of vehicles, even coming in on his off time to make sure the vehicles were in proper working order.
Outside of his duties at CCH, Allen enjoys spending time with family, fishing, cooking, fixing things and growing cactuses and succulents.
Merrick says in the future he hopes to be seen as someone with expertise in the EMS field, still striving to help others in need.
