Hearing Again
For children who are learning to read, the English language is full of tough challenges. Many words contain tricky silent letters. Other letters are pronounced differently depending on the word, requiring students to learn context clues to get the right sound. There are also homonyms — words that sound the same but are spelled differently. And that’s just a few of the pitfalls.

Bruce Smith says, “A hospital building operates differently. There are a lot of things you have to take care of.” 

Ten years ago, Bruce joined Boone Hospital Center as a mechanic in the plant operations department. His primary role is to provide regular, preventive maintenance to the sterile processing equipment in the hospital’s central services area and operating room, making sure that a multitude of machines are kept in good working condition, ordering parts, making repairs and quickly responding to any issues.

Gayle says, “When I first applied at Boone Hospital Center, it was specifically for a nursing position on the oncology floor.”
