CONWAY, SC– Conway Medical Center (CMC) recently recognized Jamie Gaston, RN and Stephanie Jones for their work of giving exceptional customer service for the hospital’s quarterly “Starfish of the Quarter” award. This award is given to two CMC staff members, one clinical and one nonclinical, who personifies service excellence by going above and beyond for CMC’s patients and families.
Jamie Gaston, RN is a nurse in CMC’s Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. She has been employed as a nurse at CMC for almost 14 years. Gaston was recognized for her commitment to patient care and her interaction she has with patients on a daily basis. Sue Rudnicki, director of Center for Wound Healing says, “Jamie makes each patient feel as if they are her only patient. She is a true advocate for them and educates them about the treatment all while being a team player with our physicians and staff.” Gaston has completed additional option training for her job including testing as a Certified Wound Care Associate.
Stephanie Jones is employed as a social service worker on the Enrichment Team at Kingston Nursing Center (KNC) and Medstar. Jones was nominated by her peers for her ability to deal with a wide variety of individuals and handle the diversity of all their needs. She is an advocate for patients and their families when situations are difficult. “Stephanie readily offers a listening ear to those in need. Our Medstar families are in crisis many times and Stephanie helps them successfully wade through the myriad of choices. She is willing to be silly and fun in order to help others laugh and has a delightful sense of humor that she willingly shares,” states Laura Fowler, administrator of KNC and Medstar. Jones has been working at KNC and Medstar for five years.
Gaston and Jones will be up for “Starfish of the Year” at the end of 2014, along with the other quarterly winners. For more information on this award contact Blakely Roof at 843-347-5895.
