Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare has announced that Kathy Mount is the February GVMH Staff Member of the Month. Kathy has been an employee of Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH) since January 1978 and currently works as the Senior Buyer in the Materials Management Department.
Coworkers nominated Kathy and had the following to say about her:
Kathy is the "go to person" for her coworkers. They know she will stop whatever she is doing and go the extra mile to help them. She takes pride assisting customers to find what they need and at a cost savings.
Kathy strives to make sure our customers get needed items in a timely manner. She works with customers to see if an alternative item will meet their needs when a cost savings opportunity is possible or to meet a required deadline. Kathy keeps her customers informed during the entire ordering and receiving process from start to finish.
Even when a day becomes challenging, Kathy always remains pleasant. Whether she is answering her phone or greeting customers, Kathy always uses AIDET—it just comes naturally for her. I cannot say enough about Kathy’s quality work. We are very fortunate to have her in our department.
In being named Staff Member of the Month, Kathy 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. Kathy is also one of 12 finalists for the 2016-2017 Staff Member of the Year award.
