We Recognize Tammy Barber, January Person of the Moment

Soft-heartedness and technical expertise are equally vital in phlebotomy. After all, better draws (and consequently, results) naturally happen when patients feel more comfortable and relaxed – something that’s easier said than done. For this reason, the best phlebotomists have the expertise and empathy to put patients at ease, even during intense vulnerability or distress.

That’s where phlebotomists like Tammy Barber shine. With her listening ear, comforting words, and genuine empathy, Tammy regularly makes a difference for patients in every moment – not just those that matter most. For this reason, we proudly recognize Tammy as January Person of the Moment.

Tammy’s thoughtfulness aligns with our second tenet: “Together, we treat every patient, visitor, and team member with compassion and dignity.”

Tammy, you’re a gem whose unfailing compassion offers a shining light that helps brighten even the darkest days. We’re incredibly proud to share your moving story and the striking impact you make every day.

Thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do – and congratulations on your recognition as January Person of the Moment!

About the Person of the Moment Award

The Person of the Moment Award recognizes the unsung heroes across Stormont Vail Health. To qualify, the nominee must perform a ​​specific act, no matter how small, demonstrating behavior that aligns with our five tenets and creates a meaningful connection with a patient, visitor, or team member.

This award is open to all Stormont Vail Health team members, excluding directors and members of the Operating Committee. When the Operating Committee selects a Person of the Moment each month, they notify the individual’s department and organize a small recognition ceremony.
