Award.

All Beebe team members pledge to follow a system of values. 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.

Janet was recognized for going above and beyond to make a visitor more comfortable. Dave McGown, who submitted Janet’s L.O.V.E. Letter, wrote that he saw Janet speaking to a visitor who was uncomfortably stretched out on a sofa outside the operating room hallway.

“Janet checked on the visitor and then gave them a pillow and blanket,” Dave wrote. “I walked past about a half an hour later and the visitor was comfortably wrapped up in the blanket and resting. I am sure they appreciated Janet’s compassion and kindness.”

Janet demonstrates many of the Beebe values, including acting with passion and love for others to make a difference and building trusting relationships with compassion and kindness. Great job, Janet!

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
