Meet Jason Dizon, certified surgical technologist at Plainview Hospital. Jason’s passion for learning helps him grow and succeed in his career journey at Northwell.
As a certified surgical technologist, Jason works in the operating room where he sets up for each surgical procedure, assists the operating room team, and maintains the sterility of the instruments to ensure patient safety. Working alongside our surgeons and the surgical team, Jason is constantly learning new things that will provide superior care for his patients. Since Plainview is also a teaching hospital, Jason has opportunities to teach students who are in school to become certified surgical technologists.
Jason is proud to be a part of a dynamic work environment with state-of-the-art surgical equipment. Since joining Northwell in 2015, he tries to make a difference every day for his patients with the support of his team members. “I love that my work enables me to help people,” he says. “The team I work with supports me and makes me better every day.”
With his passion for caring, learning new things and supportive encouragement from his managers, Jason is now looking to pursue a nursing career in the next step of his journey with the financial support of tuition reimbursement from Northwell. “I’m excited about the future and the prospect of becoming an OR nurse, as my management team fully supports me going back to school.”
When asked what advice he has for those looking to start a career as a surgical technologist, Jason shared, “Know that we do not just pass instruments to the surgeon. We help make our patients feel better and improve their quality of life, which is why I love my job.”
