Mary Lou Houle Nursing Excellence Award - Sharon Roy

Sharon Roy of Deerwood, Simulation Lab Coordinator at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in Crosby, this week received the Mary Lou Houle Nursing Excellence Award. She will be honored at a banquet on May 11, 2017, as part of the organization’s Healthcare Week celebration.

 

The nurse received the award for her leadership in the nursing profession and involvement in several committees.  Roy has worked at CRMC the past 10 years and has a total of 32 years’ experience in nursing. She has been an ER nurse, charge nurse and critical care nurse.

 

Her award nominator wrote, “Sharon is intelligent and her years of experience in the nursing profession shine through in her ability to teach those around her in a fun and uplifting way. She has knack for teaching and her laugh and spirited teaching techniques make learning fun for all involved.”

 

“I was very honored to be recognized by my peers. It’s humbling to have touched so many people doing something I love,” Roy said of her recognition.  I’m proud to be a nurse and part of an organization that values my skills as an RN and an educator. When someone looks back on their career, I hope they think of me and say, “she was my role model, I wanted to be the type of nurse she was.”

 

Roy earned her Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul. She worked for Gillette’s Children’s Specialty Clinic, St. Paul Ramsey Medical Center’s Pediatric Unit and Hennepin County Medical Center’s ER before coming to CRMC.

 

Other nominees for this year’s award included:  Surgery RN Kathleen Maloney, Surgery RN Sarah Oehrlein and Emergency Department RN Drew VanSanten. 

 

CRMC established the Mary Lou Houle Nursing Excellence Award in 2010. Houle began her nursing career in 1959 at the original CRMC, Miner’s Hospital, and retired in 2010. She dedicated her career to the patients, families and community of the Cuyuna Range.  She was a skilled Registered Nurse working in many areas such as Obstetrics, Surgery, the ER, Medical/Surgical, Staff Development and Leadership.  She was renowned for her exceptional patient care and the level of dedication she demonstrated in every patient interaction.

I CARE Ambassador Award - Pat Glenz

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Business Office Lead Pat Glenz of Crosby was recognized as an “I Care” Ambassador Wednesday for the care and compassion she provides to patients and others.  She will be honored at a banquet on May 11, 2017, as part of the organization’s Healthcare Week celebration.

 

“With a grateful heart I humbly accept this award and can’t thank my amazing co-workers and friends enough for recognizing me. I thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to work here and for all the people he has put into my life who have inspired me. It is an honor that I will hold close to my heart forever,” Glenz said in acceptance of the recognition.

 

A member of CRMC’s staff the past 32 years, Glenz was nominated for always being willing to help others and the organization with her support.  Originally from Cloquet, Minn., she is a graduate of the Minnesota School of Business in Minneapolis.

 

“Any time there is an event for the organization she is always ready to help,” wrote one of her nominators. “Pat’s door is always open, no matter what she is doing she is always willing to stop and listen and help in anyway way she can with a positive attitude and a smile. She checks in on newer employees and makes them feel welcome.”

 

Another nominator concurred, “Pat is an encouragement to everyone who knows her. Many people lean on her for emotional support because she listens without passing judgment. She cares about staff and always demonstrates support of department and facility goals. Many staff rely on her to lead them through changes; she is a go-to for all staff when there are questions.”

 

Other nominees included Phlebotomist Golda Donnelly, Transcription Coordinator Brenda Potter, Environmental Services Lead Denise Schmidt, and System/Database Administrator Dean Turnbloom.

 

CRMC’s “I Care” Award was established in 2013 to recognize employees who consistently provide compassionate care, a personal touch, and true caring.  Those selected have demonstrated excellence in CRMC’s values of ICARE:  inspiring, community involvement, approachable, relationships, and excellence.
