CCMH Celebrates Nursing Professionals
June 10, 2019
Carroll County Memorial Hospital continues to honor and recognize their employees by holding departmental appreciation weeks throughout the year. Employees are categorized into five groups, and are recognized during one of these five special weeks.
The second group celebrated was CCMH Nursing staff. Departments included were Acute Care, Emergency Department, Home Health, Jefferson Medical Group, Nursing Administration, Outpatient Specialty Clinics and Surgery. Their recognition took place May 20-24.
These appreciation weeks consist of treats, gifts, spirit week, charitable community donations and an employee voting system based on CCMH’s values.
“During Blue Badge Week, we like to celebrate Nursing’s hard work and dedication to our patients and CCMH,” Cindy Gilman, CCMH Director of Quality and Associate Chief Nursing Officer, said. “I am proud of our Nursing team, as they exemplify the ICARE values with each patient encounter. I am honored to be a part of this team.”
Throughout the week, decorative canvases were awarded to five staff members based on votes from fellow employees and CCMH’s values. Becky Cook received Integrity, Ashley Pittman won Compassion, Tammy Crawford was given Always, Stacey Lyon earned Respect, and Jessica Winkowski was awarded Excellence.
A Supply Drive for local mothers and babies was held in conjunction with the special week, where all CCMH employees were invited to participate. In partnership with Carrollton Kiwanis Club and Missouri Valley Community Action Agency, they collected items such as diapers, wipes, bottles and socks.
“As we typically hold our own separate drives during the appreciation weeks, we were thrilled to be able to join forces with these two local organizations, allowing us to make a larger impact on a great cause,” Kate Lyons, CCMH Community Outreach Coordinator, said.
The next group to be recognized is CCMH Administration staff, which will take place in July.
