Six members of the Waverly Health Center (WHC) team have been named April Spotlight on Values award winners. Nominated by co-workers, patients and members of the community, these individuals are examples of WHC’s values in action.
Cindy Shoemaker of Nashua, emergency department, was recognized for the value of compassion. Cindy bought a cake that the ED team presented to a patient’s family to celebrate an anniversary. Her nominator continued, “Cindy initiated a powerful moment of celebration in a tragic situation. Her thoughtfulness was an inspiration to us all.”
Cheryl McBrien of Waverly, environmental services, was recognized for the value of enthusiasm. Cheryl’s nominator shared, “Cheryl has a positive attitude and always has a smile; she can cheer someone up even on a bad day. She is hard working and dedicated. She realizes how important her job is and gives it her all.”
Abby Fagerlind of Raymond, surgery, was recognized for the value of excellence. During her pre-op assessment of a patient, Abby recognized a health issue that prompted cancelling the surgery that day. Her nominator said, “She provides for safe and thorough care for her patients.”
Stacey Larson of Tripoli, emergency department, was recognized for the value of integrity. Stacey keeps her coworkers front-of-mind while coming up with fair solutions. Her nominator commented, “Stacey works multiple hours on our schedule to make sure that everyone’s needs are met.”
Brian Robbins of Waverly, emergency department, was recognized for the value of leadership. Brian recently took on a supervisor role within his department. His nominator stated, “He has stepped into this new role smoothly and calmly and has been a perfect fit. With his many years of experience as a paramedic, and with this particular facility; he brings with him a great background of knowledge.”
Dr. Courtney Bochmann of Waverly, Christophel Clinic, received WHC’s Quarterly Provider Spotlight on Values Award. His patient stated, “As many can probably relate, my spouse is extremely stubborn and when it came to having regular doctor check-ups, he didn’t fall short. The first time we went to Dr. Bochmann, I told my spouse to give him a chance and to share his story from the beginning. Now, two years later, my husband refuses to go to any other physician.”
WHC has adopted six values which include compassion, enthusiasm, excellence, innovation, integrity and leadership. The Spotlight on Values program recognizes WHC employees, volunteers and physicians for demonstrating these values. Patients, visitors and employees are encouraged to submit nominations for the WHC Spotlight on Values honors. Nominations can be submitted online or at any Spotlight on Values ballot boxes placed throughout the health center.
