It’s Meet the Staff Monday and today we are getting to know Mike Wilcox, Facility Services Technician.
Name: Mike Wilcox
Job Title: Facility Services Technician
Why did you choose to work at Morristown-Hamblen? I have 15 years of experience working in hospital maintenance. I enjoy this type of work. Being in the healthcare field allows me to work with a lot of friendly people. I chose MHHS because it is a family oriented hospital and I get to work with some great guys in the maintenance department.
Where are you from? Born and raised in Mayking, Kentucky.
If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be? My dad. He is still living and has always been my hero. If I can be half the man he is, I will be doing fine.
What is your favorite food? Steak, specifically ribeye
What is your favorite TV show? Blue Bloods
What is your greatest accomplishment? Finishing my training and receiving my master electrician license.
Would you choose a free trip or money? Money. I would pay off all of my family’s debt and share the rest with them.
What is your favorite childhood memory? Growing up, Christmas was my favorite holiday. As long as I can remember, I would always sneak under the Christmas tree, cut open the tape, and peek at my presents. This would drive my mom crazy. She has tried so many ways to keep me from finding out, even switching names or not putting any names on the gifts. If I had to, I would open them all to find mine. You would think that this would have stopped the older I got, but I still do this every year. To me, that is part of Christmas.
