Amy Sessions, Care Management Director, was honored as the 2022 Partner of Nursing at Greene County Medical Center Wednesday, May 11, 2022, as another way to honor team members during Nurses and Hospital Week. There were six nominees recognized this year.
Amy’s nomination described her dedication to the Medical Center by saying, “Amy does wonderful education with the respiratory patients and with the staff. We went to great lengths with our patients during Covid, to help keep them off a ventilator. Amy will often times come into the Medical Center when she is off if she is needed, always with a smile and respectful attitude. She is an amazing employee and always available. Amy is an excellent mentor to staff on all things respiratory and responds to emergencies calmly and quickly. She is all around Always Here, Always Caring.”
Amy has been Director of the Care Management Department, overseeing Respiratory, Diabetes Education, and Cardiac Rehabilitation, since February 2022. Prior to her role as Director, she worked as a Respiratory Therapist in the Care Management Department since April 2021. Amy previously worked at Greene County Medical Center from 1989 – 2007 as a Respiratory Therapist and Director of Cardiopulmonary.
“During Nurses’ Week the nursing staff has an opportunity to recognize staff members or groups who have had a great impact on patient care and been a ‘partner’ of the nursing staff,” said Jessica Steinberg, Director of Acute Nursing. “It truly is a group effort and collaboration of nurses along with other critical positions at the Medical Center that our patients receive the best care possible.”
Nursing staff at Greene County Medical Center started this new recognition award in 2019 and plans to continue it for years to come. The award nominations are submitted by the Greene County Medical Center nursing staff, and the winner is then chosen by a committee.
Other nominees for the Partner of Nursing Award were; Heather Hagar from Family Medicine Clinic, Abby Jacobson from Family Medicine Clinic, Tam Andre from Acute and Emergency Department, Dannea Anderson from Acute Care, and Jo Hart from Lab.
