Kathy Gleason, R.N., was named Carroll Hospital Center's April Associate of the Month. A member of the Carroll Hospital Center staff for 12 years, Gleason was nominated for her generosity and kindheartedness toward a patient when she went above and beyond her normal duties to ensure the patient had everything he needed for his recovery upon being discharged from the hospital.
"Kathy is not only a wonderful nurse that does an incredible job in caring for her patients, but she is also an amazing human being," Karen Lee, R.N., clinical manager of Carroll Hospital Center's medical/surgical unit and vascular access team, said. "Everyone that knows Kathy knows what an outstanding person she truly is and feels fortunate to have the opportunity to work beside her."
Each month, Carroll Hospital Center recognizes the extraordinary achievements of members of the Carroll Hospital Center staff with a program called Associate WOW Service Awards. From those who are nominated to receive Associate WOW Service Awards each month, one Associate of the Month is chosen. And, from a year's worth of Associate of the Month winners, one Associate of the Year is selected.
Community members and hospital staff members are encouraged to nominate a hospital staff member who has demonstrated a special dedication and devotion to his/her job in a variety of ways.
