Great Plains employee receives Caring Kind Award
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Shelly Allen, Great Plains Health environmental services technician, has been selected as the Great Plains Health Caring Kind Award recipient for 2020.
This Nebraska Hospital Association award pays tribute to outstanding healthcare employees who have demonstrated compassion for patients, cooperation with coworkers and dedication to excellence. Great Plains Health celebrated Shelly with a small luncheon with her coworkers and presented her with the award plaque during a meeting filled with hospital leadership.
“If a patient is sad there’s times I’ve sat and prayed with them. Or even just our nurses who are working so hard and diligently. There’s times they get down we have to help them to have a great day. Our doctors work very hard, our nurses, it’s just a great place to be. We all can make a difference in each other’s lives no matter what,” said Allen.
Shelly works in environmental services on 3-East as well as in the COVID unit. During her time off, she also cleans for a local church. She says every day we should strive to do our best.
