Kimberly Brunty Receives Rising Star Award

Kimberly Brunty Receives Rising Star Award

Kimberly Brunty (LCHC Case Mgr) recently received the RBC Rising Star Award for her outstanding work in patient care and supporting team values. On multiple occasions, Kimberly has helped staff from other departments with patient issues like denture replacement, rides to OKC for vision appointments, and financial assistance. These are all things that case managers do, but Kimberly does them for everyone and always with a smile. She doesn’t just do her job, she goes above and beyond to make our families feel cared for. Several families have stated that she makes a difference in their care and that they would not know what to do without her.

Kimberly’s actions not only show the character of the staff that work for us but they show that she is willing to always take the extra time to get to know our patients and provide that individualized care that makes such a difference.

Sara Grover Receives Rising Star Award for October

Sara Grover is the 4th family member to join the CCMH team. Her grandmother Leanne has been in the food and nutrition department for 20 years. She also has an aunt and her mother works here as well, making Sara a legacy!

Sara is a dynamic young lady with a heart of gold. She has so much compassion that it really shines through when she delivers meals to our patients. Sara greets everyone with a smile and a friendly hello. It was this very reason that Sara was nominated and won the Rising Star award. A resident needed some help and Sara was more than willing to help her and listen to the resident which in her words “blessed her”. She is a very hard worker and is always willing to help her peers or her leadership team.
