On the Clock: Patient Transporter Reggie Thomas

The best part of Reggie Thomas’ work is when she’s around patients.

Thomas is a transporter in the orthopedic unit at Rush, where she has worked since 1985. Her main responsibility is to take patients back and forth between doctors and nurses, testing areas and other parts of the hospital.

“I get a joy when I see them getting ready to leave and they’re actually walking out without crutches or even a walker. I just clap for them and say ‘Oh my God, you guys have graduated!'”
