Beebe Healthcare Awards Julio Tijerina with L.O.V.E. Letter Award

Julio Tijerina


Beebe Healthcare is proud to recognize Julio Tijerina as the October recipient of the Living Our Values Every Day (L.O.V.E.) Letter Award.

Julio Tijerina, a CAT Scan Technologist, was awarded this recognition for going above and beyond to ensure that a patient received lifesaving diagnostic imaging in a timely manner.

“The Emergency Department was extremely busy at a time Julio received an order for a patient needing a CT scan on their head for stroke protocol,” wrote Bobbi Cole, Stroke Coordinator, in a letter nominating Julio for this award. “The nurse for this patient was in the middle of helping another ambulance patient, so Julio went and got the patient himself to take to CT.” 

Julio’s actions helped the patient get the vital testing done right away and also helped the ED staff during a stressful time.

“I thanked Julio for doing what he did and told him how the patient, the family, myself, and the ED staff were all appreciative of him going above and beyond,” Bobbi continued. “His response was ‘I was just doing my job.’”

Through his efforts, Julio has demonstrated many of the Beebe values, including “do what it takes to keep everyone safe,” and “achieve amazing accomplishments through exceptional teamwork.”

Congratulations, Julio, and thank you for all you do!

Beebe Healthcare’s L.O.V.E. Letter Recognition Program is similar to an employee of the month program. Team members are encouraged to send L.O.V.E. notes to other team members during the course of the month. A committee then evaluates the L.O.V.E. notes and selects one to receive the monthly L.O.V.E. Letter. Winners are announced in a surprise ceremony in which the committee visits the winner in his or her department and presents the award.  Employees selected for the award receive:

  • Parking space in the parking garage for one month
  • $100 gift card donated by Fred and Lyndie Hertrich
  • Gift card to Waves Car Wash
  • 100 points toward Beebe L.O.V.E. Notes Merchandise
  • 100th Anniversary History Book: Two Men With a Dream: The Story of Beebe Healthcare
  • Letter of congratulations and personal visit from members of the executive team
  • Their photo added to the L.O.V.E. Letter wall plaque
  • Letter to team member’s director and department recognition
