processes/improvements implemented as a result of their feedback on the survey.

To improve opportunities for employee recognition in addition to the WOW program,
Heritage Hall of Fame and the newly created Mission Award, we have provided the
management team with Leadership Development training incorporating concepts related
to employee recognition and communication. Additional leadership training on both these
areas is planned for this year. Since the 2007 survey, five Leadership Development sessions
have been held on a variety of topics designed to help the management team become better
leaders for their employees and others they serve. Feedback from the employee survey helps
guide the program content for these leadership sessions by helping to identify those areas
of opportunity.

                     November DAISY Award
                        Cheryl Avery from Neonatal ICU,
                        center, has been named the November
                        recipient of the DAISY Award in
                       recognition of nursing excellence.
                      The award was presented to her by
                    Pat Hegwood, left, NICU patient care
                 manager, and Lori Wiegand, interim chief
nursing officer. DAISY Award recipients receive a certificate,
flowers and a statue symbolizing healing. Avery was nominated
by the grandmother of a patient. In the nomination, the
grandmother writes: “Cheryl was the nurse on duty many nights
during (my grandson’s) six-month stay. . . She was the angel I needed to keep my hopes high that he would
survive and be normal. She was a huge moral support to my daughter and even came in on her own time to help
us transport (my grandson) to the chapel for his baptism . . . She is certainly an individual of high integrity and
moral ethic who goes above and beyond her call of normal duty.” §
