Beebe Healthcare is proud to recognize Liz Dean, Discharge Planner, as the August 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. 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.

Liz developed the Positive Energy Committee within her department. One of the initiatives of this committee was to have each team member draw the name of another team member, for whom they would do a random act of kindness within the month.

“Liz made a difference within our department by implementing a program that brings out the warmth in all of us,” said Ann Regacho, Discharge Planner, who wrote Liz’s L.O.V.E. Note. “This positive energy glows on as we work with our patients."

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

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
