GLOVERSVILLE – Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home has announced Nicole Cleary, a Registration Representative in Littauer’s Patient Registration is the recipient of the Goodwill Employee for the third quarter of 2014.
Nicole’s positive attitude, genuine smile, along with her friendly and outgoing personality with patients, and co-workers made her an obvious choice for the honor.
“Her willingness to go above-and-beyond her job details has created a total success story here at Littauer” said Littauer President and CEO Laurence Kelly. “Employees like Nicole allow us to do here at Littauer what we do best. Work sometimes behind the scenes is critical to our patient success, and allows us to strive with better programs and equipment for the community.”
“This is pretty special” said Cleary. “It’s nice to be recognized for something you love to do.”
Cleary went on to explain about a patient who was not feeling well and was understandably miserable. “He wasn’t responding to my questions, so I sang them to him. By the end of his visit he jokingly wanted to marry me!”
The NLH Goodwill award is given out quarterly and once annually to an employee, recognizing goodwill and promoting “people caring for people.” Nicole 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.
