John Garen has been named Employee of the Month (September 2015) for exemplary performance and outstanding contributions through "Living the Regional Way." Employed by the Regional Medical Center since February 2011, Garen serves as a Network Analyst for Information Systems.

The following excerpts are from Garen's nomination for Employee of the Month: “… always willing to listen and then translate in ‘IT lingo’ for us … goes the extra mile to assist in troubleshooting even when the issue is not his responsibility … never complains … encouraging to others … always has a positive attitude ...”

A native of Burlington, Vt., Garen and his wife, Susan, live in Aiken. Garen is a member of New Covenant Presbyterian Church in Aiken. In his spare time, he enjoys listening to books on tape, online gaming and NASCAR races.
