The BEE Award

The Be Extraordinary Everyday Award honors passionate, dedicated and skillful clinical, non-nursing staff including doctors, physician assistants, APRNs and other providers, lab and imaging technicians, therapists and other clinicians.

Dr. Doyle Detweiler

Dr. Doyle Detweiler made a huge impact on the family of a woman he was caring for. Despite a long hospital stay and the patient being placed on hospice, Dr. Detweiler asked the family if he could take a few minutes out of his busy day to go talk with her – not as her doctor – as someone who cared. 

Watch how his compassionate, caring gesture impacted the family and won Dr. Detweiler the BEE Award at NMC Health.

The DAISY© Award

The DAISY© (Disease Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) for the skillful, compassionate care they provide.

Lynette Duerksen

Lynette Durekson is an inspiration to everyone she meets. She goes above and beyond for her patients. 

Lynette has been with NMC Health for over 40 years. She has an amazing skill set but the role she plays is more than what she can do. It is who she is. 

She can lift the spirits of anyone and takes the time to help. Her knowledge, compassion, commitment and grace are some of the reasons why Lynette is asked for by name when someone needs home care.
