On Thursday, January 28th, the Department of Urology hosted breakfast to honor cysto tech, Elijah Lewis, on his retirement. “Eli” has been with Shands for 43 years acting in various roles. Eli started in the dietary department, the OR as a PST and to his current role of a Urology Cysto tech which he held for over 30 years! He was an important asset to the Urology team. His work ethic was impeccable, as Eli was always the first to work and stayed late countless times to finish the cases in his room.
A gathering of current and former attendings, residents, OR and clinic staff, colleagues and friends stopped by to wish Eli farewell during the breakfast. Kind words and an honorary plaque was presented by Dr. Stringer and Dr. Su. An avid Miami Hurricane enthusiast, Eli was given several Miami mementos.
His infectious smile, friendly personality, positive attitude and
helping hand will be greatly missed!
