Calhoun Times - - FRONT PAGE -

(Cal­houn, Ga.) — Daniel Blevins, RN, was re­cently awarded Gor­don Hospi­tal’s pres­ti­gious Ex­tra Mile Award.

This spe­cial award was cre­ated by mem­bers of the hospi­tal’s Em­ployee En­gage­ment Com­mit­tee to rec­og­nize em­ploy­ees who go above and be­yond the call of duty on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. It is awarded monthly to de­serv­ing em­ploy­ees se­lected by the hospi­tal’s di­rec­tors.

Blevins, an in­ter­ven­tional ra­di­ol­ogy nurse, was nom­i­nated by Di­rec­tor of Imag­ing and Car­di­ol­ogy Ser­vices Raina San­ford with the fol­low­ing words: “Daniel is an awe­some nurse that goes above and be­yond on a daily ba­sis to take care of our in­ter­ven­tional ra­di­ol­ogy pa­tients. He is a true pa­tient ad­vo­cate and will go to the ends of the earth to make sure the pa­tient gets what they need and does it in a kind and lov­ing man­ner. He con­sis­tently re­ceives nu­mer­ous com­pli­ments, and all his pa­tients know him by name and ask for him when they re­turn for ad­di­tional pro­ce­dures. No mat­ter how busy the day is, he never lets it show to the pa­tient, and ev­ery pa­tient feels like they are his num­ber one pri­or­ity. On be­half of my­self and my de­part­ment, we feel that he is very de­serv­ing of this award for his tire­less ef­forts to en­sure pa­tients are cared for and treated with com­pas­sion.” About Gor­don Hospi­tal Founded in 1935, Gor­don Hospi­tal is proud to be a mem­ber of Ad­ven­tist Health Sys­tem.
