It's time she is recognized! She is a PILLAR of GCMC! She has the kindest heart. Helps everyone, pays for things out of her own pocket to help residents, patients, families, and employees that no one ever knows about. She respects everyone! She helps in any area of the hospital where help is needed. She is a team player and promotes TEAMWORK to all employees. She is always positive and has a smile. She loves GCMC. Because she deserves it after the many years she has been here and worked for our family. For her many long years of dedication to GCMC. She represents all the beliefs of GCMC; she is dedicated and loyal to GCMC. Always helps when asked, cares about patients and doing her job. Lets you know where you stand gives constructive criticism, tells you when you are doing a great job. Look at her years of service and dedication! How many roles can one person complete?!?!
