Newmark Memorial Award

The 2021 Israel D. Newmark Memorial Award was presented by Chief of Medical Staff Dr. James Krieg Nov. 17 to Amy Eggemeyer, Care Coordinator Manager at Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Krieg read the following words from co-workers: "This employee makes each and every patient she comes in contact with feel like family. She shows compassion by comforting patients and their loved ones during some pretty stressful and complicated situations. She has a knack for remembering the names of patients' relatives, various appointments, patient likes/dislikes, etc. We believe it is because she genuinely cares for them. She is always professional and treats her peers with respect. Always upbeat and ready to boost morale.

"I have heard more compliments from our patients and families in the last couple of years since she has taken on her new role. She works extremely hard at what she does and takes pride in giving our community outstanding care during their stay. She makes sure that every detail of their care while at the hospital and when they return home are in order."

Eggemeyer was honored to receive the award. "I absolutely love my job at Memorial Hospital. I work with a fun bunch of people, not only nursing staff, but other departments as well," said Eggemeyer, who has worked at the hospital for four years.

"I love working with the community. There is nothing I love more than getting a phone call asking about our swing bed program and what I can do to help get either themselves or a family member in. I have a lot of pride in our hometown hospital. "
