Earlier this month at our Service Awards Banquet, we celebrated our staff who achieved 5, 10, 15, 20 or more years of service in 2013, recognized an employee with 40 years of service, announced our Employee of the Year and Leader of the Year, and presented a special lifetime achievement award to our vice president and chief operating officer, Randy Morrow.
This week, we’d like to share some videos with you about the people who make Boone Hospital Center a special place.
Joni Cupp, Pre-Admitting Surgical Services
Employee of the Year
Coming to the hospital for a surgery creates anxiety for many patients, especially first-timers. Fortunately, Boone Hospital Center has nurses like Joni Cupp. As a registered nurse who works in Pre-Admitting Surgical Services, Joni helps guide patients through the surgery process. She compiles a medical history and tells patients and their families what to expect before, during and after surgery.
Every day, Joni works with patients to make sure that their experience is a positive one from the start and to put their fears at ease. She embodies both the compassion and the quality that make Boone Hospital a great place to receive health care. She truly deserves to be our 2013 Employee of the Year.
