ICARES/Thank You Grams
To: Jamie Harrison, Matt Bowman, Lyndee Fogel, Shawn
From: Ben Power
Message: The Pharmacy crew has been a tremendous help
the past few months with numerous reports required for the
Epic transition and Meaningful Use. Thank you for your
expertise and customer service!
To: Shara King
From: Susie B. & Kelly S.
Message: Shara had a great idea of getting hand towels in
our rooms for our OB patients when they have their
ultrasounds done. Thank you for thinking of our patients,
To: Molly Ruud
From: Jean Rice
Message: Molly is a great person to work with. I can depend
on her to find an answer to whatever problem I might bring
to her. She took time to help me with a Peak1/computer
problem that I thought would take a few minutes to fix. Turns
out it took quite a bit longer than that and a fair amount of
Molly's valuable time. She very patiently walked me through
the necessary steps required, made sure I understood what
Peak1 needed, and sent me on my happy way! Thank you,
A one time team in honor of Vickie Neiffer
