Jamie Kottwitz, a registered nurse II at Wright Memorial Hospital, was honored as the hospital’s Employee of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2019. Steve Schieber, Chief Executive Officer, presented the award to Kottwitz at a ceremony held in her honor on January 23.
The Employee of the Quarter Award recognizes an employee who provides exemplary service, going beyond the call of duty to support fellow employees or to comfort or assist patients and their families.
In her nomination form, Kottwitz’s co-workers said, “Jamie is an integral member of our team. She is proactive and recognizes when coworkers need an extra hand, both within and outside the department. She often picks up extra shifts to assist other departments and floats wherever needed while maintaining a positive attitude. Jamie has a real knack for keeping our patients calm, informed, and comforted.”
In recognition of the award, Kottwitz received an Employee of the Quarter certificate, the parking space of her choice for three months, three eStore vouchers, a gift certificate to the hospital gift shop, her name posted on the Employee of the Quarter wall plaque, and acknowledgment in the local media and hospital employee intranet.
