|Amanda Hindle is presented with the|
2014 Compassionate Caregiver award
Amanda was described in a nomination as the cheerleader for the NICU, a leader for all functions and events that raise awareness of the NICU and support patients and families. Working with some very sick patients who are in the NICU for weeks and sometimes months, Amanda comes in on her days off to help when needed. And, demonstrating the true spirit of compassion, Amanda has rallied the staff around one of the unit’s nurses who is bravely battling a deadly illness herself to help boost her morale in this difficult time. Amanda even gathered the NICU staff to sing the popular song, Happy, which they recorded and posted to YouTube to help bring a smile to their ailing colleague’s face. Thank you, Amanda for all that you do for our tiniest patients, their families, and your peers in the NICU.

Don’t Miss the Town Hall MeetingsOne of the single biggest problems for large organizations in any field is the ability to communicate to everyone. The bigger you get, the more layers of management you have- making it harder to get communication from top to bottom. This is why a couple of times a year we run a series of town hall meetings. These meetings help narrow the gap between the front office and the front line. Think of the town hall meetings as a sort of “State of the Union” address where I have the opportunity to update our team on how we’re doing and also hear directly from our people through open discussion and dialogue.
We welcome everyone to come to a meeting with questions and ideas. Town hall meetings will be held in both large forums and through individual unit and department sessions. Here is the schedule for the upcoming and remaining Town Hall sessions – please mark your calendars!
