Former DORS consumer Andrew Scardefield is now an Anne Arundel Medical Center employee. Andrew began working with DORS while he was still in high school as part of a program called Project Search.
Andrew enjoys his work at the hospital where his duties include patient transport and being a radiology escort. "I like to make patients smile, like they are not in the hospital. I tell a joke or two. If they're scared, I help them calm down.”
