NHA honors Nebraska hospital employees with “The Caring Kind” award
LINCOLN — The Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) has recognized 75 Nebraska member hospital employees for their excellence in service by bestowing them with the organization’s prestigious The Caring Kind award.
For 41 years, The Caring Kind award has been given to Nebraska's most caring and compassionate hospital employees. The award honors outstanding health care employees who have demonstrated compassion for patients, cooperation with co-workers and dedication to excellence in their job responsibilities. “2020 has certainly been a challenging year and we were forced to cancel our annual convention. One of the highlights is our annual Caring Kind Awards luncheon, “ remarked NHA President, Laura J. Redoutey, FACHE. “This year, we had to get creative to make sure we give our recipients the recognition they truly deserve. The Caring Kind award symbolizes kindness, caring, dedication and commitment to patient care at our hospitals. These individuals are so very deserving of our recognition.”
Hospitals across the state each select one The Caring Kind award recipient from within their respective institutions to be recognized. More than 2,600 caring, skilled and dedicated health care professionals have received this award since its inception in 1979. In lieu of the annual awards luncheon, this year’s recipients have been recognized with a special video available online. Rex F. Famitangco, Laboratory Administrative Director of Morrill County Community Hospital, has been recognized as this year's NHA The Caring Kind Award.
“Every Nebraska hospital employee plays a critical role in providing high-quality, cost-effective treatment and ensuring the safety of themselves, their co-workers and patients each and every day. These honorees are star performers through their dedication to patients and teamwork, ensuring that care is safe, quality-driven and cost-effective for consumers, as well as for the organizations they represent,” said Ms. Redoutey.
