Caring Kind Award
Each year, member hospitals of the Nebraska Association of Hospital and Health Systems (NAHHS)are afforded an opportunity to nominate an outstanding employee for this award. Caring Kind recipients exemplify the teamwork, dedication and spirit that create a positive work environment and enhance patient care.
The award is presented during the Caring Kind Luncheon at the NHA Annual Convention in Lincoln, Nebraska. The Caring Kind Luncheon is always one of the most anticipated events of the year as the Nebraska Hospital Association recognizes one employee from each NHA member hospital who exemplifies the "care" that is synonymous with healthcare.
In 2009, our Caring Kind recipient was Connie Mann, in 2010 it was Dietary Supervisor, Janelle Fleer, Mark Tietz was named Caring Kind in 2011 and in 2012 our Caring Kind Award winner was Director of Nursing, Laura Gamble. The 2013 Caring Kind recipient was employee Tammie Thomsen. In 2014, employee Ginger Nixon was honored with the award.
