St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center announced Wednesday that Angela Brady, one of the emergency department nurses, was chosen as a recipient of the St. Luke's 2007 President's Award. The President's Award is system-wide recognition of an employee nominated by peers who exemplifies compassion and teamwork. It includes nominees from all four St. Luke's campuses: Boise, Meridian, Twin Falls and Wood River.
This year the other nurses chose Brady as a role model who sets high standards for herself and the team in every area of nursing. Peers are the first to recognize the unique attributes a co-worker possesses in making their special contribution to the community through St. Luke's. It's that recognition by peers that makes nomination for the President's Award such a distinct honor.
"Angela was singled out from an extremely high caliber of people for her leadership skills, team values and nursing excellence," said Bruce Jensen, CEO of St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center, located south of Ketchum. "She now joins an elite corps of St. Luke's people setting an example of excellence, compassion and teamwork for all to emulate. It is truly an honor to have Angela as part of our team."
