When Mylinh Huynh, Insurance Follow-Up Representative, and Crystal Grant, Patient Accounting and Customer Service Representative, walked into Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest for their new colleague orientation, called Connections, they each had their own first-day jitters. Luckily, they didn’t have to face the nerves alone. That’s because they recognized each other from across the room, even though they hadn’t connected since high school.
“I was really surprised when she came up to me first because we always run into each other at the most random times, but we have the same reaction as if we were in high school again,” says Grant. “It was just a nice feeling to see a familiar face from my childhood.”
Huynh was equally surprised at the coincidence.
“Of all days, times and locations, in a sense we are starting a new adventure together – a new chapter in our lives starting at the same time,” she says.
