HURON, S.D. – Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) honored its June Exceptional Employee of the Month, Sandie Hathaway, RN, with a reception on Wednesday, June 17, 2015.
Hathaway, who has worked as a registered nurse for nearly 38 years at HRMC and currently works in the surgery department, was nominated by coworkers to receive the honor. According to nominating coworkers, “Sandie is conscientious and always makes sure her customers have a positive, memorable experience.”
“She does this by thoroughly explaining procedures and outcomes to the patient and making them feel like they are her top priority,” the nominaton continued. “Sandie also willingly helps her team by stepping up to cover call when others need to be off and is a cheerful happy person who smiles her way through even the most stressful times.”
HRMC’s Exceptional Employee of the Month award recognizes an employee who goes above and beyond to exceed expectations. Employees can be nominated by other employees or by a patient or visitor who witnesses exceptional service. A committee of employees from various hospital departments chooses the employee on a monthly basis and an Exceptional Employee of the Year is chosen at year-end from the 12 monthly honorees.
As June exceptional employee, Hathaway received a reception with family, friends and coworkers, a meal certificate to a local restaurant, a professional photo session and portrait, $50, a lapel pin and a special parking place for a month.
Hathaway earned an associate degree in nursing from Huron University. “I enjoy taking care of patients and making their stay here as pleasant as possible,” said Hathaway.
