Littauer’s A.C.E. Award presented to some valued employees


GLOVERSVILLE, NEW YORK (May 1, 2018) – “People helping people,” that’s what Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home is all about.

One of Littauer’s highest honors to receive is the A.C.E. Award. A.C.E. is an acronym meaning Awards Celebrating Employees. The award is given to any employee who does something extraordinary outside the scope of their role within the organization.

On April 16, three Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home employees were surprised with the A.C. E. Award before their peers. The Rev. Bonnie Orth, Pamela Bell and Alexis Hayes, RN, each received the award for their extraordinary work done outside the scope of their role within the organization. Paying their own way, and carrying in all supplies – Orth, Bell and Hayes joined 31 others and traveled to Pachaj, Guatemala in February for nine days to provide care to Guatemalan residents.

On Friday, April 6, Melissa A. Bown, ANP, employee health and infection prevention manager was driving to work when she witnessed a severe car accident. She quickly pulled over, called 9-1-1, and proceeded to check on the two drivers.

Smoke was filling the one vehicle from the dashboard. Bown assured the driver help was on the way and went on to open the vehicle doors allowing for ventilation. She then went to check on the other driver. Unable to open the vehicle doors due to the impact of the accident, Bown could only assure this driver to remain calm and help was on the way.

Bown feels she did nothing out of the ordinary that anyone would have done. Yet, her calm, assurance and professionalism were to be celebrated when she was then nominated for an A.C.E. Award. She received her award on April 19 before a gathering of her peers.

Littauer is very proud of these special employees. Their compassion and humanitarian efforts have gone far beyond what they bring to Littauer every day. For these reasons, they are each recognized.
