What Our Employees Say

Ling W., RN & 
Kevin W., RN
"A big part of growing up is learning how to be selfless and advocating for people, pretty much like the Memorial Herman core values. It's been ingrained in my mom's teaching to me, and that's what we always try to show to those we serve."
Britany B., Heart & Vascular RN
"My motivation comes not only from my patient outcomes, but the success of my team as a whole."
Omar R., Transfer Center RN "I'm proud of the work we do in the Transfer Center! I still put patient care at the center of what I do, just indirectly. It's what motivated me as a bedside nurse, and still does."
Dora G., Telemetry RN "I chose Memorial Herman because it was the hospital I grew up visiting, and is the same hospital that allowed me to complete my nursing clinicals. I felt that Memorial Hermann went the extra mile to ensure that we had the best learning opportunities, and I truly believe that they select their employees carefully in order to create an environment that supports career growth."
Jennifer B., ED RN
"Preceptors in the Nurse Residency Program really demonstrated how to function as a nurse. The program gave us a person to shadow, modeled how to be a professional nurse and weren't just like 'okay you got this' a it's a lot of hand holding and then letting you go when you're ready."
Magdalena A., OR RN  "At Memorial Hermann, I can set and reach my own goals, whatever they may be. There are plenty of opportunities for nurses to further their education or skill set in whatever direction they choose. There's something for everyone."

MEET THE HILL FAMILY

 It centers on the Hills, an American family in the fictional city of Arlen, Texas, as well as their neighbors, co-workers, relatives, classmates, friends, and acquaintances.

Henry Rutherford "Hank" Hill

Hank has a very difficult time saying "I love you" to any member of his family, as he thinks it is unmanly. Hank's trademark exclamation when surprised or angered or in times of discomfort (sounding like "Bwaaa!") and his phrase "I tell you what" ("what" in his dialect being pronounced "hwaht") are running gags on the series. 

Margaret J. "Peggy" Platter Hill

An exemplary softball pitcher and a Boggle champion and has started a career in real estate. She has a habit of adding or changing ingredients to ordinary dishes then naming them after herself. "Spa-Peggy & Meatballs" and "Apple Brown Peggy" are examples.

Robert Jeffrey "Bobby" Hill

Although friendly, gentle, lovable, and generally well-liked, he is not very bright and often prone to making bad decisions. He wants to seek fame as a prop comic and move to New York when he is older.
Bobby displays little interest in gender roles and, although superb at golf and target shooting, dislikes team sports
