Surgical Technologist of the Year

Joni Philippi


     Joni Philippi, a Certified Surgical Technologist who works in Hastings, was chosen as this years Surgical Technologist of the year. 
Joni has been a Certified Surgical Technologists as well as a member of AST for almost 33 years. She is described as hardworking, calming, easy to get along with, accommodating and passionate with all aspects of her care. Joni demonstrates leadership on a daily basis through her expertise in the GYN specialty. She takes the extra time out of her day to teach or in-service her fellow staff on any scrubbing techniques, upcoming changes, or any tips or tricks with no questions asked (even though their time is limited). Joni is unique in the fact that not only does she scrub for a GYN group, she also performs many duties in the office. She knows first-hand what surgeries are performed and can predict any upcoming complications during surgery related to the patient’s diagnosis. This comes in handy to complete accurate surgery insurance authorizations in a timely fashion. Joni always has the patient’s best interest at heart. Not only is she ALWAYS prepared for the procedures, she is consistently watching over the patient’s positioning to be that second or third pair of eyes for the patient. Joni is a prime example of what anyone in surgery should strive to be. She demonstrates many if not all the qualities a surgical technologist needs to perform the job well.
Congratulations Joni!! Thank you for your continued dedication to your patients and the profession of surgical technology!
