Jamestown Regional Medical Center recently announced Erin Stewart as its most recent Legend Award recipient.
The Legend Award is the most prestigious distinction for a JRMC employee. The Legend Award recognizes employees who exceed expectations and make THE difference in the lives of those they serve.
The JRMC Emergency Department nominated Stewart because of her willingness to always go above and beyond to help out her coworkers.
“Every morning, Stewart stops down to ask if we need any help,” JRMC Emergency Department Registered Nurse, Rachel Macdonald wrote. “Erin is a team player and deserves to be recognized and thanked for going out of her way to make certain that other departments are doing okay.”
Originally from Bakersfield, Calif., Stewart joined the JRMC team in 2016 and resides in Jamestown. She chose JRMC after hearing from former classmates that at JRMC you’re more than just a number – you’re part of a family.
JRMC’s 350 employees cast anonymous votes to select each Legend Award winner.
The purpose of the Legend Award is to inspire, motivate and capture the moments that define JRMC. The goal is to help employees and volunteers connect to the sense of purpose that brought them to the organization. This award is for employees who’ve 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 President & CEO, Mike Delfs.
Once nominated, both JRMC administration and employees vote on their favorite nominees and their stories.
“Erin has a ‘can do attitude.’ She has been instrumental in ensuring that JRMC provides quality and safe respiratory care. Erin is quick to step in to offer assistance and support her fellow co-workers,” said JRMC Chief Operating Officer Ricki Ramlo. “We are blessed to have this California ‘clinician’ on our North Dakota-JRMC team.”
The Legend Award first began in 2012. Since then, more than 35 individuals have been named Legends and more than 110 employees were nominated.
The JRMC Emergency Department team would like to recognize Erin Stewart, respiratory therapist, for always going above and beyond to help us in the Emergency Department.
Every morning, Stewart stops down to ask if we need any help. When we have been busy in patient rooms, she has answered our phones, assisted with call lights and helped nurses assist with patient needs. Stewart is a team player and deserves to be recognized and thanked for going out of her way to make certain that other departments are doing okay.
Thank you for all you do. Your willingness to help does not go unnoticed and we appreciate you so much!
