SHINE Award Winner

Becky Hass Specht, a nursing assistant in Acute Care at Methodist Fremont Health, has been honored with the Shine Award. 

She received two nominations for her outstanding care and compassion. One came from a family with a relative at the end of life:

“The whole family commented on her sincere and caring demeanor. It meant so much to us all at such a tender time. It will always remain in our memory that he was kept as comfortable as possible in his last hours of his life, and it brings us peace.” 

A second nomination came after her care of a different patient:

"Becky helped him find the lighter side of the situation and even had him laughing with her wit and humor. What a blessing she was to this man and to all of her patients!”

Congratulations, Becky, on receiving the Shine Award. We thank you for all your hard work to show patients and their families The Meaning of Care.
