Rex F. Famitangco
The Power List 2021 – Front(line) and Center
Rex is Laboratory Administrative Director at the Morrill County Community Hospital. His proactiveness led his hospital to be the first in western Nebraska to offer both SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR testing and antibody testing – and allowed for rapid identification of cases by having RT-PCR test results available in less than five hours. Rex also initiated an ongoing study of COVID-19 vaccine reactogenicity, immunogenicity, and effectiveness in protecting healthcare workers. He was recently awarded the 2020 Caring Kind Award from the Nebraska Hospital Association, and was one of five winners of the 2020 ASCP Board of Certification Lab Hero Award.
