Cheryl Newey, American Sign Language Interpreter

Interpreter Services Department

“Cheryl is a true team player! She is always calm and relaxed when speaking with patients, and her attitude is always outstanding!” says co-workers of Cheryl Newey, May’s Star Performer of the Month.

Cheryl has been in the Interpreter Services Department at Lowell General Hospital since 2009. In her role as a per diem American Sign Language (ASL) / English interpreter, she travels to all of the hospital campuses when needed to assist our patients. When called for last minute cases, she does not hesitate to reschedule her own appointments so she is available for our patients.

A prime example of her dedication came from the Emergency Department a few months ago. Cheryl was called at 3 am to assist a patient who had come in for care. She not only came to the hospital, but also helped with the triage and only left after the patient was discharged.

“It is a pleasure working with Cheryl whose love for her profession is apparent by the way she treats her patients,” says Gabriela Bradburn, Manager, Interpreter Services. “She always goes way above and beyond helping the population she serves, taking pride in her work with her patient appointments. Cheryl has excellent skills as an American Sign Language interpreter and maintains a trusting environment for her patients and co-workers.”

Cheryl lives in Acton with her husband Whit. They have five children and 10 grandchildren. When she is not at work, Cheryl loves to stay busy with reading, gardening and traveling. In June, she is looking forward to her daughter, Jennifer, visiting from Hawaii with her four children.

Congratulations Cheryl! You’re a Star!
