Lindsay Moore Named 2024 Respiratory Therapist of the Year for Kansas

Stormont Vail Health’s Lead Clinical Educator Respiratory Therapy Simulation, Lindsay Moore, MBA, RRT, pulls double duty as both teacher and facilitator by mentoring clinical team members to identify opportunities for growth and education. She’s also responsible for fostering mutual respect and trust among team members and implementing motivational strategies from the individual to the organizational level.

Naturally, fulfilling these responsibilities is a tall order, but for Lindsay, it’s simply part of a job she loves. For this reason, we proudly recognize Lindsay for being named the 2024 Respiratory Therapist of the Year in the State of Kansas from the Kansas Respiratory Care Society (KRCS). Keep reading about Lindsay’s achievement and remarkable efforts to elevate our respiratory care services here.

Topeka Team Achieves Gold Level Safe Sleep Hospital Recertification

Stormont Vail Health is proud to announce the Cribs for Kids’ National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification program has once again recognized the team in Topeka as a “Gold” Safe Sleep Hospital for their commitment to best practices and education on infant safe sleep.

The gold certification, the highest level of designation, demonstrates the dedication toward ensuring our patients have the proper sleep education for when they take their new baby home. This recognition is more than an achievement; it’s a testament to ensure every baby in our care goes home with the safest start possible. Congratulations on your recertification and thank you for the high-level care you provide each day!

We Recognize Tiffany Naccarato, APRN and Advocate

Tiffany Naccarato isn’t a hat gal, but you’d never know it, given how many she wears. She’s an Advanced Practice Provider specializing in Cardiology at the Stormont Vail Health Manhattan Campus. She’s also the co-owner of Paradox Coffee & Bistro in Junction City and a mother of four. On top of everything else, Tiffany is the primary caregiver for her mother, who developed early-onset Alzheimer’s at age 56.

Like the rest of her collection, she never removes this hat. However, unlike the others, her advocacy influences every area of her life – from the clinic room, where she helps patients grappling with dementia-related symptoms and their loved ones navigate their health, to the café, where she raises money for Alzheimer’s research, and to her home, where she has rallied her family to join her in local advocacy efforts. And that’s just the start — keep reading here.

First Responders Recognized by Stormont Vail

Stormont Vail Health recognized first responders Friday during the 50th anniversary of National EMS Week. The celebration included an award presentation for the Excellence in EMS Award to an emergency medical services professional who made a difference for someone in an emergency. This year the award went to Dennis Shry, AMR.

Brian Aeschliman, EMS liaison for Stormont Vail, said in an interview with WIBW-TV, that this was an opportunity to show appreciation for first responders in our community. “I think a lot of times, the public, we start to take calling 911 for granted that: we are going to call and people just show up. The call volumes they are under, the stress they are under. I don’t think we really appreciate our first responders maybe as much as we should because we just see them on that one call when it may be their 23rd call for the day,” Brian said.  “There is a lot that goes into it not only for them but for their families. I think it is important that we really recognize and understand the sacrifices our first responders make every day.”

We together,
Dr. Kenagy
