Hendersonville, NC - Teleios Collaborative Network (TCN) announced the inaugural recipients of the Care As It Should Be Award during the August Visioneering Council Meeting.
The purpose of the Care As It Should Be Awards is to recognize those individuals who make an extraordinary impact on the patients and families who they serve daily. “We know that each of our staff members who take care of patients or provide access to care for patients provide excellence. These awards are to recognize those who take it to the next level – those who make personal sacrifices and who go above and beyond to make a patient’s experience at their most vulnerable time the best that it can be,” said Chris Comeaux, President and CEO of TCN.
Each TCN Member Organization was encouraged to nominate staff members who they felt elevated patient care. The nominees for the 2022 awards were: Elisabeth Capron, RN, Hospice of Eastern Idaho; Dr. Glenn Golaszewski, MD, Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care; Tammy Jordan, CNA, AMOREM; Christine Norman, Patient Access Liaison, Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care; Beth Solesbee, RN, Four Seasons, The Care You Trust; and Dana Walker, RN, Carolina Caring.
The award recipients are Dr. Glenn Golaszewski, MD, Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care; Tammy Jordan, CNA, AMOREM (awarded posthumously); and Dana Walker, RN, Carolina Caring.
Each recipient will receive a crystal etched award along with a monetary gift. The monetary award may be used to further their education or to celebrate with their team members.
Comeaux added, “TCN is pleased to recognize those who are committed to the missions of their respective organizations and most importantly to those who are on the front lines every day providing exemplary care.”
TCN is a nonprofit organization that has created a clinically integrated network that shares expert leadership, industry best practices, and resources with its member organizations, allowing community-based, nonprofit hospice and palliative care agencies to continue their work of providing compassionate care for those facing serious illness or the end of life.
