Saint Thomas, Virgin Islands, November 25, 2015, Lillia E. King, Former Supervisor of Histopathology with Schneider Regional Medical Center, has been recognized by Elite Women Worldwide, for dedication, achievement and leadership in health care administration.
A recognized expert in health care administration and histopathology, Ms. King is celebrating a well-deserved retirement following more than four decades of service to the health care industry. Her initial interest in medicine was heavily influenced by her family, which included three doctors, as well as her mother, who served on the American Red Cross board for many years. Ms. King is incredibly proud to have continued her late mother’s work well into retirement, and is especially grateful for the support and encouragement she has received from family and friends throughout the course of her career.
Upon graduating from the College of Saint Elizabeth in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in biology, Ms. King began working in the medical industry, which eventually culminated in becoming the supervisor of histopathology at the Schneider Regional Medical Center. In this position, she was primarily responsible for ensuring that the histopathology department continued to operate without issue. Her wide array of tasks included directly supervising four people, stipulating the required employee category, making equipment requests, maintaining updates, documenting reports and reporting to appropriate medical personnel. Now a certified paralegal, Ms. King hopes to have a memorial museum dedicated to her late parents in Saint Croix in the coming years.
