This special award was created by members of the hospitals Employee Engagement Committee to recognize employees who go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. It is awarded monthly to deserving employees selected by the hospitals directors.
The CSR surgery team was nominated by Chief Nursing Officer Amy Jordon with the following words: Recently, we were in a critical situation, and these employees took it in stride. They changed their personal schedules, made multiple trips back and forth to Murray Medical Center, worked very long hours, even overnight, and never once complained. They exemplified our mission and the best of our culture through this major issue and didn't think twice about doing it. We are so proud of them and the example they set for all of us.
