Texas Health CEO Recognizes Texas Health Stephenville Employees, Volunteer|
STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Texas Health Resources CEO Doug Hawthorne recently commended Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenville employees Joell Kohr and Sammy Moore and volunteer Nita Loutherback for their outstanding service.
“Joell, Sammy and Nita have worked diligently to provide an outstanding level of care and support to the patients in Stephenville,” said Christopher Leu, hospital president. “We are blessed to have many wonderful employees, volunteers, and physicians on the medical staff who really give 110 percent to our patients every day, but these three individuals stand out from the rest.”
Kohr, a registered nurse in the intensive care unit, received the Living the Mission Award, which recognizes her dedication to high levels of integrity, performance and teamwork. Kohr, a 12-year Texas Health Stephenville veteran, is an Advanced Cardiac Life Support instructor, an active member of the hospital’s rapid response team and has developed and taught an eight hour EKG course.
“Taking care of people, making a bad day a little better, seeing healing and progress is motivation to strive to do my very best on a daily basis,” Kohr said. “I thoroughly enjoy my job and I am thankful each and everyday for having the opportunity to work with such capable and caring people.”
Loutherback, a member of the Auxiliary Board, has volunteered at Texas Health Stephenville for six years. For nearly four years, she has placed volunteers in areas of service that fits each volunteer’s abilities. Loutherback has been known to drop what she is doing to guide someone or get them what they need. She received the Helping Hands Award for her dedication and service.
Moore, Pharm D, is the director of pharmacy at Texas Health Stephenville. Moore was given the Patient Safety Star Award for his diligent care in keeping patients safe.
Moore said that his staff benefits from support and cooperation provided by the nursing department. He said that the award represents the work of his entire staff and not just himself.
“It was an honor, but the award was more indicative of a group effort,” he said.
Working at Texas Health Stephenville has added a measure of caring for people that he knows personally, Moore said. “It just adds something extra when a person’s name is more than just a name.”
