|Sharon O'Neill is congratulated by Linda Sharkey, Vice President of Patient Care, on her more than three decades of service to Fauquier Health.|
Sharon O’Neill, IS Clinical Analyst, will be retiring this month from Fauquier Health, after a little more than 30 years of service.
Sharon began her career with Fauquier Hospital on November 6, 1982 as a radiology technician. Bernice Pearson, who worked with Sharon in those early years, remembers that she always provided courteous and compassionate care to her patients. She had an amazing focus on customer service and treated her patients as if they were her own family members. She was a team player, and always willing to help out a patient or a coworker, said Bernice. Sharon also spent several years as an office manager in the Radiology Department.
In 1999, Sharon transitioned to an analyst role in the IS Department, and was an integral part of the team that brought up the new Meditech system. She translated the caring attitude she had for patients into a passion for building the system to be effective for end-users and for teaching her supported departments the most efficient ways to use the system. She trained all levels of users and was known for her patient and confidence-building approach. Sharon assumed responsibility for more modules within Meditech and was soon sought out by others for her global understanding of the highly integrated system.
