West Bend Resident Recognized With St. Joseph’s Hospital Award

West Bend, Wis. — Stephanie Meyer, West Bend, critical care technician in the Modified Care Unit, has been recognized with St. Joseph’s Hospital’s semi-annual Sunflower Award for her care, compassion and authenticity.

Four nominators recognized Stephanie for hard work and dedication to her unit and patients. “Stephanie was amazing, I had complete trust in her,” said one nominator. “She was kind and made sure that I was comfortable.” “Stephanie has pulled me out of self-pity by just being her!" said another nominator. "Her empathy, humor, compassion and pure authenticity lights up my room every time she enters.”

The Sunflower Award honors extraordinary nursing support staff who demonstrate devotion, strength and compassion to ensure the well-being of patients, family and staff. St. Joseph’s Hospital recognizes one nursing support staff member twice a year. Each Sunflower honoree is recognized at a public ceremony in his/her unit with a certificate, a Sunflower Award pin and a hand-carved stone sculpture titled “Supporting Heart.” The sunflower was chosen as the award theme because the sun symbolizes warmth and strength, and the flower represents devotion, compassion and enthusiasm.

Patients, visitors, nurses, physicians and staff may nominate a support staff member by filling out the form available in CHD hospital lobbies and nursing stations and following the instructions or through Excellence in Action.
