Spirit Awards Presented to Oklahoma Hospital Employees

Spirit Awards Presented to Oklahoma Hospital Employees

Fifty hospital team members statewide received an Oklahoma Hospital Association (OHA) Spirit of Resilience Award during the 2017 OHA Annual Convention, Nov. 2. The 50 front-line, behind-the-scenes and administrative employees received the award because they demonstrate strength and toughness in the face of great challenges and adversity. Award recipients were chosen by their hospitals for exemplifying the Spirit of Resilience because they: recover quickly from a set-back or adversity; do not let failure define them, continuing on a path to success; come back stronger than ever when knocked down; react optimistically when faced with sudden change or an unexpected outcome; or change a negative turn of events into a positive source of healing for their patients. “We are pleased to honor these special hospital employees who have dedicated time, talent or expertise to improve their organizations and their communities,” said Craig W. Jones, president, Oklahoma Hospital Association. “These are the type of team members who, when they see problems, consistently work to solve them.” Northeastern Health System’s Cancer Center, Northeast Oklahoma Cancer Center, was awarded for their resilience when long-time and much-loved Radiation Oncologist, Daniel Murphy, suddenly passed away. The staff pulled together to continue patient care, even through their grief. They comforted patients and made arrangements to keep all scheduled treatments so as not to disturb the patients’ treatment schedules.   Photo Caption: The NHS Cancer Center team recently received the Oklahoma Hospital Association Spirit of Resilience Award.

The Hospital Volunteers of Oklahoma recently recognized 14 volunteers from across the state as 2017 Volunteers with Spirit. The awards were presented during the Hospital Volunteer Day meeting at the Oklahoma Hospital Association Annual Convention on Nov. 1. The award was given to hospital volunteers who exemplify the spirit of service and have a passion for the work they do for their organizations. Volunteers with Spirit winners bring something special to their local hospital auxiliaries by standing out from the rest in what they do, how they do it or why they do it. Each volunteer auxiliary at Oklahoma hospitals was given the opportunity to choose one person for the award. Auxiliary President, Sueann Freeman, was recognized from Northeastern Health System. Freeman’s leadership as president has increased revenue and put the auxiliary on a great path to success.   Recognized as 2017 Volunteers with Spirit were: Mandy Brownback, AllianceHealth Midwest, Midwest City Bob Carlson, INTEGRIS Grove Hospital Bobbi Childers, Mercy Hospital Ardmore James “Frank” Cline, Cherokee Nation W.W.
