FAIRBURY – Amy Martin, physical therapist in JCHC’s Rehab and Sports Clinic, was recognized as Jefferson Community Health Center’s Caring Kind employee for 2016 during the annual Nebraska Hospital Association Caring Kind banquet in LaVista, Neb., on Friday, Oct. 14. Martin was among 81 Caring Kind honorees from Nebraska hospitals recognized this year.
The Caring Kind award recognizes employees of Nebraska hospitals who “exemplify the spirit of those who give that ‘something special’ that makes our facility work.”
Martin’s nominators said she constantly strives to ensure Jefferson Community Health Center’s patients receive optimal care. One nominator said: “She is one of the most compassionate and sympathetic people I know, which enables her to better connect and serve her patients.” She demonstrates dependability on a daily basis by proactively helping her peers, volunteering in community activities, and always being the first to say ‘I can do it” when asked to take on additional assignments. She is good at problem solving and is quick to say ‘How about if we try …..’ She communicates and explains well, and patients and residents of all ages love to see her. She works well with other departments and is always looking for ways to best help the patient.
Martin has been providing services at JCHC for 16 years. She can be found working with hospital patients, nursing home residents, or with rehab patients in the pool.
Her passion for her patients, towards her department, and towards our hospital and community makes her a Caring Kind employee.More
