Special Recognition

NTHS would like to recognize Justin Plott, RN, LCDR for his outstanding performance.
Justin graduated from Miami High School and enlisted in the US Navy in 1998. He served aboard the USS Briscoe (DD-977) as a Fire Controlman, Petty Officer Second Class. After an honorable discharge from the Navy, Justin come home to Miami and attended NEO for two years before transferring to Missouri Southern State University. He graduated MSSU with his Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Justin started his career with Northeastern Tribal Health System in 2009. He started as a same day nurse and within a short period, become the Nursing Supervisor. Justin continues to work in the capacity of the Nursing Supervisor and is a critical link between management and clinical care. He oversees patient-care, the quality of care, monitors nursing activities, and implements change for improvement. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Justin was responsible for the medical department and the same day clinic. Since COVID-19, Justin has added to his plate, the COVID-19 drive thru test site, the COVID-19 vaccination clinic, and the infusion center for COVID-19 treatment. What a huge undertaking! Not only has he added to his administration responsibilities, but Justin also takes an active role in performing COVID-19 tests, giving vaccinations and administering medication through infusions. I think we all can agree that he is the Super in Superhero! Throughout this current pandemic, Justin has demonstrated his qualities of patience, perseverance and leadership. He has successfully brought together all the pieces needed to serve our patients and employees.

Justin is married with two children. He loves spending time with family and friends and making trips to Starbucks. He is an OU football fan, likes to play golf, and enjoys Texas Hold’em Poker. Justin likes to participate in fantasy football and rumor has it, he actually used to win! We love you Justin and thank you for your dedication!

January Employee Spotlight

This month we celebrate 19 years with Tink Smith! Johnny “Tink” Smith grew up in Picher where he graduated high school in 1992. After graduating, Tink pursued his lifelong career in healthcare. He started the nursing program at NEO in 1995 and completed his bachelors in nursing from Pittsburg State University. He completed his education with a MBA from South Nazarene University.
Tink started his nursing career at St. John’s in Joplin. He worked in the CVICU for two years before accepting a nursing job in the ICU at Integris Health. In 2002, Tink joined the NTHS family where he now serves in the capacity of the CEO.
Shortly after his accepting the role of CEO, the world was hit with COVID-19. With little knowledge about the virus and no set guidelines, Tink took action in order to prevent the spread of the virus among employees and patients. The storeroom was immediately stocked piled with various types of PPE; plans for COVID testing were put into motion; and the staff was scheduled on a rotating schedule in order to minimize exposure. What a huge task to take on as a new CEO! However, Tink handled it professionally.
Tink is well liked in the community and among peers. He is a hardworking, dedicated and fair individual. He is a devoted husband, father and grandpa. Tink is a HUGE OU fan, loves golf, and loves vacations with his family. Give Tink a shout out for his accomplishments!

During 2020, the world has seen a crisis of an unprecedented nature and I want to congratulate everyone for pulling together. I am especially proud for what an extraordinary organization NTHS is, and it is thanks to all of you.

I wish to express my most heartfelt thanks to each and every one of our employees. You are all setting an extraordinary example of commitment, professionalism, and solidarity. You are the best guarantee that NTHS will emerge from the events of the past year stronger. Your focus and commitment to care for our patients and each other, often in the toughest of circumstances has been amazing.

Every role across the facility is part of a great team, doing magnificent things for our families, patients, and the local community.

So much has changed this past year – the world around us, our neighborhoods, gathering spaces, the places we work and call home. Life in the midst of COVID-19 has sparked fear, frustration and anxiety all around. Our patients and families have shown great resilience and patience in managing these challenges and changes.

I am overwhelmed by the unquestionable strength and character of our employees and community. Like many organizations, we have been so encouraged by the outpouring of support we have received throughout the year. The messages of gratitude, acts of generosity and words of encouragement are powerful affirmations for the whole NTHS team. THANK YOU!!

As always, I would like to extend a special thank you to each Board member, numerous Tribal leaders, and partners in the community who dedicate their own time to the mission of providing excellent healthcare to our patients and community members.

On behalf of the NTHS Board and Executive Team we thank you for your ongoing support of NTHS and hope you are able to spend precious time with loved ones over the holidays.

Please continue to follow NTHS on FB and stay up to date with rollout of the Covid Vaccination plan. Most importantly stay safe and well.

I am so very thankful to be part of this team and remain extremely hopeful for an exciting new year.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

J. Tink Smith, CEO

IT’S HERE! SARS Covid-19 vaccine has arrived at Northeastern Tribal Health System. Today, employees stood in line to receive their first vaccination for Covid-19. During the initial phase, the CDC recommends only healthcare workers and long-term care facility residents for vaccinations. However, these recommendations will change to include more groups as larger quantities of the vaccine become available.

Per the CDC, this recommendation was made while taking into consideration these goals:
• Decrease death and serious disease as much as possible.
• Preserve functioning of society.
• Reduce the extra burden COVID-19 is having on people already facing
disparities.

To learn more about the vaccine, visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/index.html.

She loves doing yard work, decorating her home for the different seasons and holidays, and attending Powwows. Those who know Charla, knows that she is a kindhearted, giving, and lovely woman. She is always putting others ahead of herself and is the first one there in the time of need. She is devoted to the care of her mother, shopping for her, and doing the upkeep of her home. In addition to being caring, she is also a good cook! I hear omelets and chicken & noodles are her specialty.

November Spotlight is Suann Raff as she celebrates 28 years with NTHS!! Suann grew up in Miami and graduated from Miami High School. She went to pharmacy school at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, OK. She started at NTHS in 1992 and became the Assistant Chief Pharmacist in 2001. One of the great things about working with Suann is that regardless of how big or little a task is, Suann is always willing to jump in and help out in wherever she is needed.

Suann and her husband, Charles, have been married for 39 years and have one daughter and two granddaughters (that she adores and tries to spend as much time with as possible). Suann likes antiquing and traveling. Her and Charles have taken many bus trips during their travels. One of her favorite trips was to Eastern Canada and the Great Lakes.

Congratulations Suann!!!

I want to thank you all for having me as a speaker for the MY LIFE Conference. It was one of the best conferences I've been a part of. So professional, well run, organized, and incredibly efficient. You all should be very proud of the difference you made to over 700 plus high school young ladies. Speaking of the young ladies; they were fun, engaged, kind, respectful, and represented their schools with the utmost professionalism and class. What a great visit. I put together a little video of my visit. Please share ad thank you once again.
This is what happened to my cousin. she was going to the Indian clinic in Miami and they treated her for allergies with an antibiotic. It wasn’t allergies, it was congestive heart failure. This went on for 5 weeks. Finally they sent her to Tulsa.
Will there be flu shots ? If so when? Thanks
