Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare has announced that April Hart is the April Staff Member of the Month. April has been an employee of GVMH since May 2010 and currently works as a Physical Therapist Assistant in the Rehab & Wellness Department.
Coworkers nominated April and had the following to say about her:
“April always maintains a positive attitude. She treats everyone she meets with courtesy, compassion, and respect.
“April looks for ways to help out the GVMH rehab team. She has taken on several small projects to keep the department organized and running smoothly. April has volunteered to assist in the new Osceola clinic without being asked, and she has also taken it upon herself to complete continuing education courses in the treatment of lymphedema.
“Committed to her community, April volunteers for many GVMH and community events including the Diabetes Walk and has assisted in organizing the Halloween Hustle. Additionally, she volunteers at many church events as well.
“April does an excellent job of truly listening to our patients’ concerns and educating them in a compassionate and understanding manner. When she is out of the department for any reason, we consistently miss her presence.”
In being named Staff Member of the Month, April was given a bouquet of flowers, a $100 gift certificate, and her name will be engraved on a plaque to be permanently displayed in the hospital. April is also one of 12 finalists for the 2017-2018 Staff Member of the Year award.
