Rob Kaniper is Blount Memorial Hospital’s December employee of the month.
A five-year employee of the hospital, Kaniper works as a registered nurse in the hospital’s emergency department.
His supervisor says, “I do believe that Rob is an excellent candidate to represent the hospital. He treats all patients and visitors as honored guests, taking just as good of care of the family as he does the patient. He shows concern even for the smallest complaint. I hear him always introducing himself to the patient and family.”
When asked what he likes best about his job, Kaniper says, “meeting fascinating patients and their families.” Outside of Blount Memorial, Kaniper enjoys taking care of his land, racquetball, getting together with friends, hiking and bicycling. One thing he says people might not know about him is, “I played racquetball competitively and was a local champion.”
