Environmental Services Technician

It's the little things in which DeAnthony Jones takes pride that shows his caring for Patients.

It's the way a Patient room is cleaned or how quickly he responds to a request. It all goes back to his mother telling him to "do things like you would want them to be done if you were the Patient."

DeAnthony, 29, has worked at Sparrow since he was 21. He's proud of his reputation for dependability and how people notice his work. DeAnthony relishes taking care of the "little things" that can make a big difference.

He sees his job, and those of his colleagues in Environmental Services, as critical in caregiving. "The time a Housekeeper or tech takes to talk to the Patient to try to get to know them and make them feel a little more at home, that makes all the difference."
