Spirit Awards Presented to Oklahoma Hospital Employees
Fifty hospital team members statewide received an Oklahoma Hospital Association (OHA) Spirit of Resilience Award during the 2017 OHA Annual Convention, Nov. 2. The 50 front-line, behind-the-scenes and administrative employees received the award because they demonstrate strength and toughness in the face of great challenges and adversity.
Award recipients were chosen by their hospitals for exemplifying the Spirit of Resilience because they: recover quickly from a set-back or adversity; do not let failure define them, continuing on a path to success; come back stronger than ever when knocked down; react optimistically when faced with sudden change or an unexpected outcome; or change a negative turn of events into a positive source of healing for their patients.
“We are pleased to honor these special hospital employees who have dedicated time, talent or expertise to improve their organizations and their communities,” said Craig W. Jones, president, Oklahoma Hospital Association. “These are the type of team members who, when they see problems, consistently work to solve them.”
The 2017 Spirit award winner from Okeene Municipal Hospital is Robyn Acre. Robyn is a Registered Nurse who is always ready to take charge and "get the job done". When the ER is inundated she prioritizes patients and their care and does not get rattled when things don't go as planned. Robyn is always there to uplift other staff when they have had a rough day and encourages others she is working with so things go smoothly.
