East Georgia Regional Medical Center has named Amy Channel, who works as an RN in the Endoscopy Department, for the hospital, Employee of the Month for July.
Amy started her career at Bulloch Memorial Hospital in 1985 in the Nursery. In 2011, she began working in the Endoscopy Department at EGRMC and has remained a tremendous asset to the hospital as a whole.
“Amy is one of my highest performing nurses and is honestly everything I could ask for in not only an employee, but in a nurse,” stated Stacy Hutchinson, endoscopy nurse director at East Georgia Regional. “Amy is the exact kind of nurse I would want to care for me or any of my family members. Amy is passionate about caring for others in a way that exudes ownership, commitment and advocacy.
“I have seen Amy repeatedly advocate for what she feels is the best course of action for her department and our patients. Having a sense of urgency and attention to detail are valuable assets in any employee, but are crucial in today’s healthcare system. I have never had to impress upon Amy how important these values are. These are values that are innate to her and her work ethic as a nurse. Second to her commitment to her patients, is her commitment to the endoscopy team and our operation. Amy has a desire for things to work well and to have solid functional processes.
“I am blessed to have Amy on this team and firmly believe that she is the ‘poster child’ for EGRMC’s Employee of the Month.”
