Sherri Leamy is a Rising Star at Grant Regional Health Center!

Thursday, February 2, 2023

Each quarter, Grant Regional Health Center recognizes outstanding employees through the Rising Star program. For the fourth quarter of 2022, Sherri Leamy, C.M.A. received this distinguished recognition. To achieve this honor, the program’s nominees personify the remarkable patient experience and Grant Regional Health Center Values of Respect, Integrity, Professionalism, Community-Minded, Commitment, and Progressive.

The Rising Star Award is designed to recognize Grant Regional Health Center employees who exemplify the spirit of the Rising Star. The employee is productive and will possess quality in carrying out his/her responsibilities in the organization. The employee is an asset to the organization as well as his/her department. Nominations can be submitted by any visitor, patient, or employee. The Rising Star committee selects one winner each quarter from the nominations received.

Sherri was nominated by Kathy Hocking of Fennimore. The nomination states, “Sherri is very compassionate to her patients. When I bring in my daughter Charlotte to see Dr. Bhattacharya for a treatment, Charlotte gets upset most times and Sherri talks to her in a calm and soothing voice, this calms her right down. That’s what I care about most for Charlotte. Sherri is very caring. Also, for myself when I come in to see my doctors in Specialty Clinic she maybe can tell if you are nervous before your appointment. She calms you and she can change your mood when you are upset or nervous about coming to a doctor. Sherri, keep up the good work and never change your compassionate way with your patients!”

Each individual nominated will receive a certificate, a star pin to add to their name badge, as well as a copy of their nomination submission. The winner is revealed at this ceremony and will receives a Grant Regional Health Center and Rising Star logo’d jacket; a special parking place at the staff entrance, and their photo will hang on the new display wall of the North link of the hospital.

“At GRHC we take great pride in our staff’s dedication to improve the health and wellness of all generations through high quality, compassionate, patient-centered care. We cannot accomplish all our goals without the extraordinary staff members that work diligently to serve patients and our community.
