Congratulations to our March Employees of the Month: Cindy Tapia and Gilbert Gallegos

Cindy Tapia joined the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center at Lovelace in August 2008 and later joined the CAS Desk team in August 2016. Cindy’s thoroughness in providing quality administrative support to our providers, staff, and patients continues to be outstanding. She has been instrumental in efficiently streamlining the CAS Desk processes with her co-worker. Working closely with our providers, Cindy works diligently for our patients to receive their Rx refill in less than 24 hours of the patient’s initial request. Thank you, Cindy, for your exemplary support and dedication to our patients and to all of us!

Gilbert Gallegos, Environmental Health & Safety, has been with the UNMCCC Plant Operations team since October of 2015 and has been an invaluable contributor to the mission of the department. He regularly goes above and beyond expectations, and has been instrumental in the development and implementation of electronic life safety compliance processes/documentation, as well as revision of emergency operations procedures following the Tenant Improvement expansion. His efforts behind the scenes have made a significant impact on the ability of the Cancer Center to meet facility compliance regulations, and are helping to set the benchmark for best practices campus wide. Gilbert is always ready to inject his sense of humor into an otherwise serious subject, but above all, strives to keep patients, providers, staff, and visitors safe.  It is an honor to have him as a part of the Plant Operations team. Thank you, Gilbert, for all you do!
