Watch how Reggie Thomas helps patients get around Rush. Thomas is a transporter in the orthopedic unit and has been with Rush since 1985. Her main responsibility is to take patients back and forth between doctors and nurses to testing areas and other locations. For Thomas, the best part of her day is interacting with the patients. She also gets a kick out of seeing patients "graduate" as she refers to it when they're finally able to move around with the help of crutches or walkers.
