Beebe Healthcare Recognizes Loretta Holtgrewe with the February L.O.V.E. Letter Award

Loretta HoltgreweBeebe Healthcare is proud to recognize Loretta Holtgrewe, Histotech with the Anatomic Pathology Lab, as the February 2018 recipient of the Living Our Values Every day (L.O.V.E.) Award.

In 2015, Beebe created a system of values, which every team member pledges to follow. As a patient or visitor at Beebe, you may see these value statements posted. We invite you to help us be mindful of our values as we care for you and your family members.

Loretta was nominated by Deborah Polkovitch, Histotech with Beebe’s Anatomic Pathology Lab. Deborah wrote that Loretta lives the Beebe values by treating each individual with respect and dignity, building trusting relationships with compassion and kindness, and by acting with passion and love for others to make a difference.

Thank you, Loretta, 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:
