Beebe Healthcare Recognizes Sue Ann Newsham with March 2018 L.O.V.E. Letter Award
Beebe Healthcare is proud to recognize Sue Ann Newsham, Nurse Manager for the Emergency Department, as the March 2018 recipient of the Living Our Values Every day (L.O.V.E.) Award.
All Beebe team members pledge to follow a system of values, which were created several years ago. 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.
Sue Ann was nominated by Marcy Jack, Vice President of Quality and Safety, after Marcy learned that Sue Ann had gone out of her way to help the wife of a patient who came through the Beebe Emergency Department and had to be transferred to a regional burn center.
“The patient’s wife was getting ready to leave the ED, but had no shoes,” Marcy wrote in the nomination. “Sue Ann asked her what size shoe she wore, and it was the same as Sue Ann's. Sue Ann then proceeded to give her shoes to the patient's wife.”
Sue Ann demonstrates the Beebe values by treating each individual with dignity and respect, and acting with passion and love for others to make a difference. Great job, Sue Ann!
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
- 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
