Each quarter, the Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Safety Circle awards the Safety Star, which recognizes departments or individuals that have either the most improved safety record or have made a difference in patient and employee safety. This quarter, the award was given to the hospital’s 6NW unit because they had the most improved safety record from 2016 to 2017.
This quarter's DAISY Award winner is Bronson Snoddy, RN from ICU.
At Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital, the DAISY is awarded quarterly. The DAISY Award is a national program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. The founders of the program use the award to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people.
Guthrie is asking patients, employees, and the Twin Tiers community to nominate Guthrie providers for the Donald Guthrie Distinguished Provider Award. This award recognizes providers who have gone above and beyond to provide outstanding service that has made a meaningful difference to the patients we care for.
Any Guthrie provider can be nominated. Nominations need to include the name of the provider as well as information on how that provider made an impact on your, or a loved one’s, life. Nominations may be made anonymously and do not have a required word limit.
Sept. 2, 1987, marked the start of the Guthrie employee shuttle service. The service started with just three diesel powered shuttle buses that had to be plugged in and six employees. Two years later, the Thomas Ave. shuttle lot opened with 730+ parking spaces. Over the past 30 years the employee shuttle service has expanded to a department of 10 drivers with a fleet of six gas powered shuttle buses.
