Following are comments from Sue Ellen Jenkins, Nuclear Medical Technologist at the Center:
''As an employee I feel very blessed to work for a company that would invest in me as far as how that affects the ability to deal with your customers, your patients. It's a win win situation for everybody. . . .
''When you walk through the clinic, there's an air here of hope, there's an air of commonality among the staff.
''Come here and feel the environment and you tell me, what's the difference.''
Ms. Jenkins' comments are featured on a seven-minute video documenting the positive impact the program has had on the whole atmosphere at the Center:
