On February 4, 2021 Memorial Hospital CEO, Brett Bollmann named Tammy Light Employee of the Quarter for the Fourth Quarter 2020.
Tammy has worked at Memorial Hospital since October 2019. She is a Housekeeper during the evening at the hospital. When asked what she likes most about working at Memorial Hospital, Light replied, “My coworkers. No matter what department, they give their best to ensure each patient receives quality care.” Her co-workers write, “She goes above and beyond in her nightly routine. She is always sure to check in with each unit to see if there are extra tasks to be complete. Whenever she is on call she is always willing to come in to clean a ‘COVID’ room with a smile on her face and never complains. Even with increased workloads due to COVID, she never voices any complaints. She is always eager to assist in every aspect of patient care from the smallest detail to the largest plan and with a cheerful attitude. Everyone really enjoys working with her and appreciates her very much!”
Tammy resides in Chester. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, photography and playing with her grandchildren. Light received a personal plaque, cash prize and parking spot of her choice for the next three months.
Each quarter employees are encouraged to submit “star cards” for their co-workers who go above and beyond in their patient care or team work. Four random cards were drawn, Lennet Gibbs, Phlebotomist; CyBill DeRousse and Heather Smith, CMAs at the rural health clinics; and Denise Wilson, Specialty Clinic Secretary, were the winners of a monetary award for their star nominations.
