Waterloo Clinic Nurse Wins 2017 Mercy Award

June 14, 2017

Recently, Registered Nurse Miki Stanton from Watertown Regional Medical Center’s Waterloo Clinic was selected as their local 2017 Mercy Award Winner.  The Mercy Award is the highest honor a LifePoint employee can receive and recognizes extraordinary employees who best embrace the humanitarian spirit on which LifePoint Health was founded.

Miki’s ability to consistently demonstrate compassionate and commitment to patients, teammates and the community truly sets her apart.  She has been a nurse for 40 years and 18 of those years serving the Waterloo community.

“Miki is known for going above and beyond for our patients,” says Marcie Peirick, Director of Provider Services.  She has taken blood pressure screenings from a patient’s car because they have mobility issues and has gone to the local grocery store to check a TB test for a patient who couldn’t take a break.”

Miki donates her time to her community as well.  After the loss of a parent, she volunteered to become a certified Advanced Care Planning Facilitator.  When she is not working she donates her time to have “end of life” conversations with people in her community.  Volunteering at church, mentoring young clinicians and raising money for local charities are a few other activities that Miki is involved in.

As the local award winner, Miki’s nomination is submitted for consideration for the companywide Mercy Award. The companywide winner and a spouse/guest will be honored in August at LifePoint’s Senior Leadership Retreat in Nashville.
