Marlette Regional Hospital Awards 2017 Nurse of the Year

Marlette Regional Hospital (MRH) celebrated National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week May 6 – 13, 2017. As part of week-long activities that celebrated MRH staff, a special presentation was held to announce and award the MRH Nurse of the Year.

The Nurse of the Year program started in 2011 and is organized by the MRH Nurse Practice Council. Shelby Roggenbuck, RN of the MRH acute care department was the recipient of the 2016 election and was featured on billboards last summer. To be considered for the MRH Nurse of the Year, all nominees have had to demonstrate the following characteristics: provide outstanding direct patient care; have an extensive knowledge base; be a forward thinker who can anticipate problems and creatively put forth solutions; initiate change to better serve patients; work well in a team; motivate others; show cultural or generational sensitivities; and initiate change to better serve patients.

Nominated and voted on by peers, this year’s award recipient was Rebecca (Becky) Cox, RN of the MRH surgical services department. Becky has been in the nursing field for 14 years and has been serving patients at Marlette Regional Hospital since 2002. Becky goes out of her way to always help her patients and coworkers. On more than one occasion patients have complimented Becky by sharing that she’s the best nurse they have ever had. Becky is knowledgeable, professional and very compassionate, and it shows—patients and staff love her and feel comfortable with her. Her coworkers commented, “She goes above and beyond to assure her patients get the very best care.”

It is Becky’s kind and caring nature that she demonstrates on a daily basis to her patients and coworkers that earned her the title of Nurse of the Year.
Becky was presented with a beautiful engraved trophy at an employee luncheon as well as a gift certificate and voucher for an educational seminar/conference of her choice.
