GREENVILLE — Metron of Greenville’s new administrator aims to reach new goals, which includes being involved in the community to raise awareness about Metron.
Deb Gomez was hired in to fill the interim administrator position in February. In June, her interim title was lifted and she was named the director of administration at Metron in Greenville.
“It’s great working at Metron,” Gomez said.
Gomez comes from a nursing background and spent four years as a consultant with Pathway Health before becoming interim administrator earlier this year.
Because she is coming from outside of Metron, Gomez is able to bring new knowledge to the table to help make Metron that much better.
“I believe with her background and experience it will put us on the next level,” said Maria Robertson, community relations coordinator for Metron of Greenville and Belding.
Recently, Robertson said Metron added a new director of nursing along with a director of respiratory, which also adds great knowledge to the team to raise the standards.
“We have the best leaders who are the smartest in the business and are behind us 100 percent,” Gomez said.
Through her job, Gomez oversees departments making sure everyone is doing their job effectively and efficiently, along with ensuring funding for programs.
Some of the goals she continues to work on include improving customer service, improving survey scores and increasing community awareness.
“Our nurses are highly skilled,” Gomez said, noting their hard work.
She said the nurses are always undergoing continuous education.
Something she is looking forward to is seeing these goals play out since being a part of the development when she first started.
“I look forward to seeing them through from start to finish,” Gomez said.
When it comes to informing the community about what Metron has to offer, Gomez said they are planning different events to bring local community members to the facility.
Events such as car shows and ice cream socials are just some things Gomez said they are doing to bring Metron and the community together.
Gomez is also looking into partnering up with the local Emergency Medical Services and the Department of Public Safety to run a disaster test just to see how ready the facility is if something where to happen.
