Clinton, Mo. – (April 6, 2020) – Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare (GVMH) is pleased to announce that Mona Sweet is the April staff member of the month.

Sweet has been an employee of GVMH since August 2017 and currently works as the unit secretary in the emergency department.

“Mona always looks for ways to help the team, whether it’s making sure staff have what they need or bringing suggestions and feedback for improvement within the department. She is one of the first to volunteer for extra shifts when the unit is short-staffed and flexes her hours to come in early or stay late.”

“Mona answers the phone in a timely manner and appropriately addresses each call that she takes. Mona is diligent about assisting the nursing staff by informing patients and families when the medical staff is busy.”

In addition to being named staff member of the month, Sweet received a flower bouquet, a $100 gift certificate and her name will be engraved on a plaque to be permanently displayed in the hospital. Sweet is also one of 12 finalists for the 2020-2021 staff member of the year award.
