DCH Recognizes Latest DCH Excellence Award Winners
Shannon Driver, Roger Krebs and James Shirley are the latest recipients of the DCH Health System's DCH Excellence Award.
Shannon Driver's persistence has taken the Trauma Surgical Intensive Care Unit at DCH Regional Medical Center to the next level of performance improvement. Her understanding of unit processes has allowed TSICU to be more cost efficient. She makes each of us better, regardless of position or title. Shannon treats everyone she meets as family and encourages her co-workers to do the same. Shannon holds each of her co-workers accountable and is the last to leave their side when she is needed. She possesses an ability to understand that little things to our staff are big things to patients and their families.
Roger Krebs is a supervisor with Patient Escort Services. He always takes the time to speak to people that he passes in the hallways of the hospital. He has been a huge asset to our goal of improving the patient flow process in the Emergency Department. Roger has played an important role in helping with length of stay and creating open rooms for patients by effectively providing direction for the escort staff and by taking patients up to the floors himself.
James Shirley is extremely organized and does everything without a staff to assist him. He never complains or tells anyone that he cannot do what is needed. You know that when you call him, he is going to take care of your request. James also works tirelessly in the community, especially for veterans. He is a key player in the Tuscaloosa Rotary Honor Flight that transports veterans and their guardians for free to Washington, D.C., to view the war memorials and Arlington National Cemetery.
Nominations for the Excellence Award may be made by an employee of the Health System, volunteers or physicians. The award is based on an employee’s performance, attitude, dependability and dedication.
