Coffee Regional Medical Center (CRMC) is proud to honor staff members who have been recognized by our patients, patient family members, or coworkers for their outstanding work to assist in our patients' and visitors' care.
When it comes to quality patient care, it truly takes a team, and The BEE Award recognizes the extraordinary work of non-nursing staff. This award complements the DAISY Award, which recognizes outstanding service and care by our nursing staff.
Recently, CRMC recognized our honoree for 3rd Quarter 2020, Nicole Smith of our Food and Nutrition Services Department! She was nominated by a coworker, who shared that she casually mentioned that she was craving a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Without hesitation, knowing this was a request she could quickly fulfill, Nicole kindly offered to make her that PB&J sandwich. This employee indicated that this was the perfect example of who Nicole is as an employee. She continued that she has witnessed endless acts of kindness, similar to this, from Nicole on her many trips to the cafeteria.
This story is just one example of what it means to go above and beyond. All non-nurse members of the Coffee Regional Medical Center staff qualify for The BEE Award. Nominations are gathered each month and awarded every quarter after the BEE Award committee members choose the award recipient. Each honoree receives a certificate that reads: "This award is proudly presented in recognition of going BEE-yond in showing our patients and visitors an Exceptional Experience here at Coffee Regional Medical Center." Additionally, honorees receive a unique BEE Award pin for their badge, a $50 gift certificate, and a reception with their colleagues featuring freshly made “honey bee” buns as a sweet treat.
