“Australians are very social people,” says Environmental Services Lead Tech Nancy Ford-Miller. Whether it’s due to Nancy’s nationality, her personality or both, it’s impossible to miss her outgoing, positive nature and willingness to step up and help wherever needed, which is why several employees in Boone Hospital’s Infusion and Treatment Center nominated Nancy to be our January 2020 Employee of the Month.
This fall, Boone Hospital employees had the opportunity to wear Kansas City Chiefs gear on weekends when the team had a home game. But they likely didn't know they had Senior Financial Analyst Cynthia Clough to thank for these team spirit weekends.
