Tammy Howell is the 2016 Caring Kind Award Winner at Antelope Memorial Hospital. She was recognized for the award on Wednesday, May 11th during National Hospital Week.
Howell has worked at the Tilden Nursing home before coming to AMH for the last seven years.
She was nominated and selected by her fellow AMH employees to win this prestigious award. Her nominations reflected the many positive qualities she brings to work each day.
“I just love everything about it,” Howell said. “I love baking and cooking and spoiling the employees.”
She lets others know if she has made one of their particularly favorite dishes that day. She is always caring and kind and makes all around her feel special.
“I grew up in Neligh and I know a lot of people. I love everyone and everyone I work with, and everyone who works here.”
Howell expected the award to go to a nurse or someone who plays a role in saving lives. But to her surprise her coworkers voted her the winner.
“I was very touched. It made me feel very special and loved.”
On Friday, October 14th, the Nebraska Hospital Association will host an award presentation at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in LaVista honoring Tammy and other Caring Kind Award winners in Nebraska.
