Timothy Cation, CMA, from Mason Clinic Pediatrics has been named Mason Health’s Employee of the Month for April 2021.

After spending 10 years in the Infantry, Timothy Cation retired from the Army and decided to go to school to become a Medical Assistant. The main reason for that decision was his wife Alma Cation, who has been working at Mason Health for five years. Hearing her stories about life working in the health care sector, patients, and the work environment inspired Timothy to follow her path and become a member of our Mason Health Pediatrics team.

“I liked my wife’s stories about her work. Also, I love kids and find working with them to be a lot of fun. They are full of great energy, and you can feel like a kid yourself again. It’s a precious experience.”

Timothy and Alma have four kids themselves and bring their own brand of parental experience with this as they care for patients. Tim commented that they have thoroughly enjoyed working at the same organization for the last two years.

“I chose Mason Health because my wife is very happy here. Then I also learned myself that it is an amazing place to work. The working environment is positive and relaxed. Every member of the Mason Health team enjoys being here.” 

At the moment, Timothy is assisting Alexandra Rhodes, M.D, Pediatrics. He is happy here at Mason Health and he has plans for the future to become a Physician’s Assistant and is working toward his goal of advancing his education and career.

Timothy shared that every day here at Mason Health is great.

“It is up to you to make the most of it. Having an optimistic outlook on life, I like to do my best in everything I devote myself to.”

In his free time, Timothy likes to be outdoors. He especially enjoys fishing and hunting. Mason County is a perfect place for these activities, and we are happy that Timothy found not only his home here, but also a place for his professional growth at Mason Health.
