CCMH Honors Staff with a High Performers Social

September 18, 2020

The first quarter Employee of the Quarter recipient was Samantha Schleuter. Samantha is a Childcare Specialist at the CCMH Childcare Center.

CARROLLTON, Mo. – To honor and recognize their employees, Carroll County Memorial Hospital typically holds departmental appreciation weeks throughout the year. Employees are categorized into five groups, and are traditionally recognized during one of these five special weeks. However, COVID-19 created a challenge for traditional recognition activities.

“The CCMH Rewards & Recognition Team worked hard to devise a plan to recognize staff in a special way, while following necessary safety measures,” said Kate Lyons, Rewards and Recognition Team Advisor. “Award winners and presenters attended in person, while the rest of staff were able to watch the recorded presentation virtually.”

Those honored at the event were Badge Week Award Recipients from both the Diagnostic and Therapeutic (Orange Badge) and Nursing (Blue Badge) groups, as well as the two individuals who were recognized for winning Employee of the Quarter for Quarters 1 and 2. 

The option of personalized canvases or Merchant Bucks were awarded to five Diagnostic and Therapeutic staff members based on votes from fellow employees and CCMH’s values. Blake Riley received Integrity, Nancy Lock won Compassion, Megan Raynes earned Respect, Keith Combs was given Excellence, and Jeremy Crooker was awarded Always.

The same gift options were offered to five Nursing staff members based on the same criteria. Tammy Crawford received Integrity, Karlie Reynolds won Compassion, Becky Cook earned Respect, Mindy Kelly was given Excellence, and Tina Austin was awarded Always.

The first quarter Employee of the Quarter recipient was Samantha Schleuter. Samantha is a Childcare Specialist at the CCMH Childcare Center. She received a monetary bonus, a plaque, gift option, special lunch delivery and a paid break in a massage chair. Comments about Samantha include:

“Sam is a very caring person. She treats the children like they are one of her own. She is very kind to everyone she encounters and is willing to stay after to help parents if they are running behind to pick up their child. Sam is a ROCK STAR.”

“Samantha exhibits our mission, vision and values on an everyday basis. She connects with her fellow co-workers, parents and children. She ALWAYS displays a good attitude and commitment towards our hospital.”

The second quarter Employee of the Quarter was Amanda Riley, CCMH Nurse Navigator. She received the same gift options as Samantha. Comments about Amanda include:

“Amanda has taken a brand new program and grown it into something beyond my imagination. She has built it from the ground up and her perseverance is what has made this program a success.”

“Amanda in her new role as Nurse Navigator has begun to make a huge impact on our patients who are trying to navigate the healthcare world after news of a cancer diagnosis or after experiencing a stroke or STEMI. She is not only dedicated to the patient, but to CCMH, and makes these unpleasant experiences more personable and less overwhelming for the patients. She always has the patient’s best interest at heart, even when it is not easy.”

“We are extremely proud of all the award recipients; this recognition is well-deserved. Their commitment to our mission, vision and values is always on display and we are glad they are part of CCMH,” said Michael Schubach, CCMH Chief People Officer.

Both Employee of the Quarter recipients will be nominated for Employee of the Year. Those employees who win awards in the third and fourth quarters of 2020 will be the next group to be recognized at a later date.
