It takes a special team, with specific expertise, to meet the requirements of healthcare customers. Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro, Tenn., trusted Lee Company’s Special Projects team to update a critical portion of the hospital’s HVAC system. By working nights and weekends, Lee Company had rooms in the surgery area back up and running before the weekly rush of patient appointments. The nurse manager on the floor was so delighted, she couldn’t find the words to describe how impressed she was. She did say, “Pleasantly surprised doesn’t come close to doing this justice.” Delighting healthcare customers? That’s special!
