Congratulations to Melissa Ackman, who was named Kettering Physician Network’s November Employee of the Month! Melissa works at Remick Primary Care.
The Employee of the Month Award recognizes the people you love to work with. These winners show exceptional performance as defined by the network’s Standards of Behavior, live out the network’s values, and demonstrate the healing presence practices outlined in Called to Care. Melissa was nominated by a fellow employee, and you can read the nomination story below:
“Melissa was working on Saturday and called to inform a patient of their low potassium level. The physician advised the patient to eat bananas. The patient became very tearful and explained she did not have the energy to go to the store and get bananas. When Melissa got off work she went straight to the store and bought bananas out of her own money and drove them to the patient, who lived about 15 minutes farther then Melissa’s normal drive home. In the same week Melissa treated our new care navigator with lunch. She stated she wanted the new employee to feel welcome on her first day.”
