Q&A: Dr. Stephanie Marton, October – December 2014
Your name, title and department. How long have you worked here?
Dr. Stephanie Marton, Medical Site Leader for the Center for Children and Women, Greenspoint. Although I have been with Baylor College of Medicine since 2008, I have worked at the Center for Children and Women for about a year.
What month are you Super Star for?
Tell us how you found out you won a super star award.
We had an all staff meeting. At the very end an announcement was made that I had won an award. I was speechless (both from shock and from a recent viral illness that had helped me to lose my voice).
What does it mean to be recognized for the hard work you do?
I feel very honored to be selected for this award. I see my entire team doing the best work every day to provide quality patient care, and I hope that everyone realizes that they, too, are part of this award.
What do you think makes someone at Texas Children’s a super star?
Giving 110 percent commitment every day to both patients and their colleagues.
What is your motivation for going above and beyond every day at work?
Every day I see patients coming in to the Center for Children and Women at Greenspoint, and I directly see the impact that Texas Children’s Hospital is making in this community. Knowing that I am contributing a small slice to improving the futures of these children is my biggest motivator. The smile on a kid’s face, their high fives, their questions and curiosity about the world, all of this keeps me ticking.
What is the best thing about working at Texas Children’s?
My coworkers. Health care is a team effort, and my colleagues with whom I work make a hard day’s work that much easier.
