NEW ALBANY, Miss.,– Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County recently announced Anita Collins, RN, has been named Service First Champion for the quarter. Collins is a nurse in the Intensive Care/Stepdown Unit and has been a part of the Baptist team for ten years.
Service First Champions are individuals who consistently exceed all expectations for the purpose of serving others and are nominated by colleagues, physicians, patients and their family/support persons for outstanding service.
Collins was nominated by a colleague for going above and beyond to help a co-worker who was hospitalized for a surgery for several days. Not only did Collins visit the home daily to walk and fed the co-worker’s dog, she also gathered her co-workers together to clean the yard. In the nomination, the colleague wrote, “She has selflessly put another’s needs before her own.”
“Anita’s compassion and genuine concern for her co-worker exemplifies what a Service First Champion should be,” said Walter Grace, CEO and Administrator. “Anita’s willingness to give her own personal time to help a team member is a true testament of her character and integrity.”
