The BEE Award is a spinoff of the nursing focused Daisy Award. It honors and recognizes team members outside of nursing who go Beyond Exceptional Expectations (BEE).
These team members provide extraordinary experiences for our patients, their families and visitors by exemplifying quality service and extraordinary care.
Recent BEE Award winners at Watertown Regional Medical Center include:
Tina Jurgensen, Fiscal Services
Nomination Year: 2023
Nominated by: Kathy King (Fellow Employee)
Story: "Since transitioning to ScionHealth the Facility has had a recent change in where and how to log invoices. This has created many phone calls and staff stopping in Fiscal to ask Tina how to log an invoice, help with finding an invoice, staff and vendors asking where the payment is for the invoice, etc... Tina continues to address each of the situations with a positive attitude no matter how frustrating it is and knowing she has no control over the process or when a payment for an invoice will be paid."
Allison Lorenz, Social Worker, SBHU
Nomination Year: 2022
Nominated by: Helayne Kirchoff
Story: "Allison was asked to see a patient in Specialty Clinic because the patient and his wife were struggling at home. Allison spent hours comforting the wife and arranging placement and hospice care. His health took a drastic turn and he was admitted to the hospital and passed away. Allison checked on his wife right away after his passing. Because of Allison’s compassionate care and expertise this patient had care at the time of his passing and eased his wife’s concerns! You’re the BEST Allison – No matter what department you help in!"
Dr. Vikram Goyal, Hospitalist
Nomination Year: 2022
Nominated by: Patient
Story: Dr. Goyal knew I wanted to attend a memorial service at a church the following day when I was admitted. He offered to come in early the following morning in order that I could attend the service I was to be a part of as long as I was medically stable. I truly appreciated his kind and genuine offer. I was not stable however but he showed up early and was sensitive to say he was sorry I wasn’t able to be discharged. He is able to understand a patient’s unique situation and adapt accordingly. I have shared my positive stay with many, many people who have asked me to share.
Gail Gerth, Information Systems
Year Nominated: 2022
Nominated by: Co-worker
Story: Gail goes above and beyond when I ask her to fix something. She never gets crabby with me or asks me to do 6 things to the device before she comes and looks at it. This is super helpful because we know all the tips and tricks to fix something and have done them all before we call/write a work order. It’s done in a timely manner and that helps us continue to provide care to our patients and go on with our day. Thanks Gail!
