Grady Memorial Celebrates Hospital Week 2014

This year during National Hospital Week local businesses rallied their support to celebrate Grady Memorial Hospital. Generous sponsors ensured that Hospital Week was a success through their contributions, and the GMH Rewards and Recognition team did a marvelous job, showing our employees that the hospital values them and they are also appreciated. The support of community businesses made our celebration even better. Mr. Kean Spellman, CEO reflected on this week's events, "Our goal within the healthcare industry is and will continue to be to provide quality, compassionate care to our community. The resounding theme this week has been community and Grady Memorial Hospital is a part of a wonderful one. I want to personally thank our sponsors that helped us honor our employees' hard work and compassionate care this week."


Our rewards and recognitions team planned a Hospital Week to be remembered. Those members included Brandy Edwards, Brenda Oaks, Jennifer Troub, Julie Austin, Kim Kennell, Lanese Embrey, Rebel Rutledge, Sherry Patterson, Stacia Townsend, Teresa Hintner, Tracy Thompson, and our support staff. The team planned to celebrate National Hospital Week in a variety of ways! The R & R Team provided Pizza Day paid for through a donation from sponsorship funds. We purchased each employee a gift of a sun visor/shade for their car. The car sun visors were purchased via donated funds from a wide array of sponsors, including LifeLine Home Health, LifeLine Hospice, Arvest Bank, Standley, Chickasha Bank, Liberty Drug, LaForge Properties, Sanders Accountants, and others. We had random prize drawings (Bar-B-Q grill; Gift shop items; etc.) throughout the week. On Monday breakfast was served for all staff - in honor of Nurses Week. On Tuesday - Ross Home Health personally came out and provided a grilled lunch for GMH staff, and served gourmet burgers and hotdogs. On Wednesday - Team shirt/Jeans Day and Snacks were delivered to Departments including candy and a pickle. On Thursday - Hospital Picnic Day/jeans were allowed. On Friday we will have pizza and cookies and all week we were giving our employees free cold beverages. So the team did a good job and we had a good time.
