Jamestown Regional Medical Center announced Dann Holm as its most recent Legend Award recipient.
The Legend Award is the most prestigious distinction for a JRMC employee. And, it recognizes employees who exceed expectations and make THE difference in the lives of those they serve.
JRMC Rehabilitation Manager, Tracy Anderson, nominated Holm because of the compassion that he demonstrates to his fellow coworkers, patients and guests.
“Ben Mathews, one of our rehab aides, was having car troubles and shared this with Cindy Nelms in Plant Operations. To clarify, Mathews is from England and has no family in the United States,” Anderson wrote. “Therefore, Nelms told Mathews to visit with Holm in Plant Operations, as he is handy with fixing vehicles. As a result, Holm kindly drove with Mathews to Kensal, N.D., where he proceeded to fix Mathews’ vehicle. In short, he took time out of his work schedule to display kindness and offer a helping hand to his coworker.”
Holm joined the JRMC team in 2008 and resides in Kensal, N.D.
“He is a real legend and a top bloke,” Mathews said.
JRMC’s 350 employees cast anonymous votes to select the Legend Award winner.
The purpose of the Legend Award is to inspire, motivate and capture the moments that define JRMC. In addition, its goal is to help employees and volunteers connect to the sense of purpose that brought them to the organization. The Legend Award is for employees who have made extreme efforts to benefit their patients and colleagues.
“The nominations inspire staff members to continually be the best, exceed expectations and make THE difference in the lives of those we serve,” said JRMC Chief Nursing Officer and Interim President & CEO, Trisha Jungels.
Once nominated, both JRMC administration and employees vote on their favorite nominees and their stories.
“We are grateful for our employees’ commitment to patients and our community,” said Chief Operating Officer Ricki Ramlo. “Dann is a great example of THE difference our employees make in the lives of those we serve.”
The Legend Award first began in 2012. Since then, more than 30 individuals have been named Legends and more than 105 employees were nominated.
KINDNESS IS UNIVERSAL
Cindy Nelms was visiting with Ben Mathews who was having car troubles.
To clarify, Ben is from England and has no family in the United States. Therefore, she told him to visit with Dann, as he is handy with fixing vehicles.
As a result, Dann kindly drove with Ben to Kensal, N.D., where he proceeded to fix Ben’s vehicle. In short, he took time out of his work schedule to display kindness and offer a helping hand to his coworker.
“JRMC has been a home away from home,” said Ben. “A simple task that helped so much. Dann showed me Kensal and we even shared a few beverages and memories as he invited me into his home to meet his wife.”
This act of kindness brought a big smile to Ben’s face and took a load off of his mind.
“He is a real legend and a top bloke,” said Ben.
Dann Holm, you are THE difference at Jamestown Regional Medical Center.
