Congratulations to: Megan Geist, Patient Care Tech; Pam Guilfoyle RN,MSN Clinical Educator – ICU; and Rick Scheer, Custodian – Environmental Services for winning this quarter’s RISEing Star Award!


Megan Geist began with Hannibal Regional on January 12, 2015.  Two people nominated Megan, one of whom wrote:  

“ I would like to express my appreciation for the job Megan performed in the ED today.  We had a very difficult and emotional trauma code this morning and Megan initially expressed concern in her ability to participate.  However, Megan did step up to the challenge and was a valued participant in this trying/tragic event.  Megan then pulled me aside and expressed her appreciation for the encouragement and was thankful she was able to overcome her fear and reluctance.  Megan was a huge asset to the code team and the ED staff. Her participation truly made a difference in our team dynamic.  I am very proud to call her my teammate!”  


Pam Guilfoyle began with Hannibal Regional on June 23, 1997.  She had eight people who nominated her, one of whom wrote:   “Pam has been wearing three hats, filling in for our ICU Director, being the ICU educator and an instructor for nursing students.  AND she does this all with a smile!  She exhibits all the RISE values as well as the Spirit of Excellence, AIDET, and all eight Quality Caring factors.  She not only does this with patients and their families, but also her co-workers.  Pam has worked diligently to keep all staff informed of changes, problems or any new issues that have occurred.   We truly appreciate her.”


Rick Scheer began with HRHS on January 25, 2016.  He was also nominated by two people, one of whom said:  “Rick exhibits the RISE values every day with a smile and genuine kindness. He is always going above and beyond to help patients, guests and fellow team members.  Whenever Rick sees a person in need he is always there to help however he can.  Only after a short time of becoming a team member he received a Golden Star for his tremendous work ethic in helping the Dietary Department.  Rick is truly a great asset to HRHS and the Environmental Services Team.”

Congratulations to this quarters winners, and thank you for all your work in helping guide our patients to BETTER!
