MCH to fly flags at half-staff in honor of employee

Local News

ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – Medical Center Hospital will honor the life of an employee who died with Coronavirus earlier this month.

As you may recall, Joe Guerra died back on Jan. 3 from COVID-19 complications, according to MCH. He was an employee with the hospital for more than 32 years and served as an EKG Tech.

“Joe was one of those familiar faces that was synonymous with Medical Center Hospital,” CEO Russell Tippin said in a statement. “Everyone that worked with him can speak to how Joe made MCH a better place. He was a hard-working man that loved his family, his job and his coworkers.”

In honor of Guerra and his service to MCH, the hospital will fly Texas flags at half-staff today.

Tippin says Guerra is very deserving of the honor and much more as they continue to mourn his passing.

“This tribute is only but a small fraction of the recognition Joe deserves for a life dedicated to helping others,” Tippin said.
