May 13, 2016
CARROLLTON, Mo. -- Amanda Riley, of Carrollton, was named the 2016 CCMH Nurse of the Year.
Amanda began her career at CCMH in the Medical Clinic after working with our facility as a nursing instructor. She made the transition to our Outpatient Clinic in 2015 and has been an incredible asset in each of her roles.
“I think each of us are reminded of how important the role of a nurse is each time we enter a hospital as a patient or with a family member. A great nurse can ease your fear and reassure you with her compassion and skill,” said Jeannie Meierer, Chief Nursing Officer. “The 2016 Nurse of the Year is not only a great nurse, she is a great person and employee.”
Some of the comments on her nomination forms included always willing to help and always willing to go the extra mile; always sweet and courteous to every patient; always demonstrates respect and embodies compassion; works to enhance our attention to our patient’s spiritual needs; provides daily devotions; always available to patients and families during times of grief and sorrow; prays with patients and families; and many, many more outstanding remarks.
Amanda and her husband, Blake, have been married 12 years. They have three children, Grace, 8, Faith Ann, 5, and Asa, 3.
