January 18, 2016
Huron, S.D. – Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) honored its January Exceptional Employee of the Month, Trisha Pekron, RN, with a reception on Wednesday, January 13, 2016.
Pekron, who has worked as a registered nurse at HRMC for more than eight years, was nominated by coworkers to receive the honor. According to nominating coworkers, “Trisha is always positive and happy, making others laugh and is truly a joy to work with.
“She is compassionate with patients and willing to go above and beyond in unusual situations,” the nominaton continued. “Trisha is also knowledgeable in her field of work and quick to identify and solve problems.”
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 January exceptional employee, Pekron received a reception with 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.
Pekron earned an associate degree in nursing from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, S.D. She began her nursing career in the cardiology unit at Sanford Health in Sioux Falls. After six years, she began working at HRMC as a nurse in the medical/surgical and ICU units and currently works in the cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation department.
Pekron and her husband, Jason, who owns Dakota Air Handlers in Carthage, live on acreage north of Cavour. They have two children: Logan, a fifth grader, and Shelby, a third grader, at Iroquois School. In her spare time, she enjoys the outdoors with her family – snowmobiling and sledding in the winter and camping in the summer.
