February 2015 Recipient
Congratulations to Mary Walker, a housekeeping aide in Environmental Services (EVS), for being selected as the winner of the February 2015 WMHS Values in Action Award.
Employed by WMHS since 1980, Mary is an excellent worker and a team player with a positive attitude and a can-do spirit that helps lead her co-workers by example. She always has a warm smile and a kind word for everyone she meets. Mary often goes above and beyond the call of duty to help visitors reach their destination by personally taking them to their desired location. She is assigned to the Emergency Department and she takes a great deal of pride in keeping the ED clean, well-stocked with supplies and generally in amazing condition, according to her co-workers.
Mary is dedicated to the ED staff, co-workers, patients and their families. She pitches in when and where her services are needed - even willing to come in at 2 a.m. to handle an urgent situation and then showing up later that morning for her regular shift. Mary's work ethic is legendary and it sets a wonderful example for her younger colleagues. She has even arranged to bring in enough food to feed lunch to the entire staff without expecting anything in return.
Co-workers say Mary is considerate, reliable, friendly, helpful, caring and very thorough. She is a valuable asset to WMHS and her department. Mary is an unbeatable combination of Service Excellence and the WMHS Core Values that makes her a pleasure to be considered a peer.
