PAS Specialist Brandy Castillo Awarded Golden Rose

Brandy Castillo
On Wednesday, April 27th, derm surgery PAS Specialist Brandy Castillo was awarded a Golden Rose, the highest honor recognizing exemplary service provided above and beyond the scope of her normal job. 

Brandy assisted a patient (who was elderly, has dementia, and does not live in the Portland area) whose medical transport ride had already left. Brandy assisted and checked in with this patient for nearly 5 hours, as that was the soonest a transport could arrive. 

She is pictured above, receiving her award from the School of Medicine Dean, Mark Richardson.
