March Person of the Moment: Nancy Billings, Environmental Services
Congratulations to our March 2023 Person of the Moment – Nancy Billings, Environmental Services Tech. Nancy went above and beyond as an integral part of our Stormont Vail Health family.
“During a code blue event – without hesitation, she stopped what she was doing and comforted the spouse who was dismayed during a code blue event. What Nancy did was admirable and from what I had witnessed, there was a bond built between the two of them. Not only did she perform her duties, she also interacted and showed compassion to the patient and their family.”
Thank you for being such an amazing representation of Stormont Vail’s tenet: Together we treat every patient, visitor, and team member with compassion and dignity. We are proud to have you as part of our team. Congratulations, Nancy!
