Bronson Methodist Hospital Presents Three Patient Care Assistants with Award for Excellence
From June 15 to 22, Bronson Healthcare celebrated National Nursing Assistant Week. Throughout the week, patient care assistants (PCAs) and technicians were honored for their outstanding contributions they make every day to providing exceptional healthcare experiences for every patient, every time. At Bronson Methodist Hospital, three nursing assistants were recognized with the Sunshine Award. The annual award recognizes nursing assistants who go above-and-beyond the call of duty to ensure our patients receive compassionate, high-quality care.
- Hilary Powell, a PCA on the emergency medical care unit (EMCU), received the Sunshine Award because of her “experience, confidence and ability to keep all of us nurses focused and on track for a successful day.” Hilary is described as someone who is “always advocating for her patients, their families, or even her coworkers. She makes sure our patients receive the best care possible."
- Rachel Townsend, a PCA on the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), was recognized with the Sunshine Award because of the care and detail she puts into her work each and every day. “Rachel has always looked at making the details matter and that her work is done 100 percent efficiently…The great thing about this is you know the patients will benefit from her concerns; and the team will benefit because they know she will always have their back.”
- Shantelle Baran, a PCA on the trauma care unit (TCU), was recognized with the Sunshine Award because of her kindness and compassion toward everyone she comes into contact with. “She has such a bright and energetic personality. She talks to her patients as if they were her close friends. She reassures them, shows compassion and makes them feel comfortable during painful or difficult procedures.”
