Crankshaw receives NLH award
August 28, 2014
GLOVERSVILLE – Primary and Specialty Care Center Manager Donita Crankshaw was nominated as the Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home Goodwill Award recipient for the second quarter.
“Of our 1,000 employees, these are people that our employees themselves want to honor,” said Littauer CEO Laurence Kelly in a news release. “These are the best of the best; they deserve our recognition for their incredible impact on NLH and patient care.”
Crankshaw proved early in her 15-year tenure at Littauer that she was somebody very special, Kelly said in the release.
Crankshaw was nominated by her peers for her respectful demeanor and vast knowledge, coupled with her compassion and sincerity while dealing with patients and co-workers, the release said.
Upon receiving the award, Crankshaw accepted while thanking her peers. “I share this award with my staff and the providers; they give 100 percent to me, and make me a better person,” she said in the release.
The NLH Goodwill award is given out quarterly and once annually to an employee, recognizing goodwill and promoting “people caring for people,” the release said. Crankshaw received a plaque on the NLH Hall of Fame, a monetary award and a preferred parking space.
Recipients for the award are nominated by NLH employees, providers or patients, and submitted to the Goodwill Committee, where in a blind format they are selected. Quarterly employees are among other nominations for the NLH Goodwill Employee of the Year.
