Christian Honored with BEE Award
TUPELO, Miss.—Stacie Christian, restorative care technician with the Rehabilitation Institute, recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award for September.
“My husband was wanting blue Gatorade at every meal. The kitchen did not have it all the time,” a patient’s wife wrote in her nomination of Christian. “When she came back (after being off work a few days)… she came early in his room and brought him a six-pack of blue Gatorade that she had bought with her own money. We tried to repay her but she wouldn’t receive anything. Exceptionally kind and genuinely sweet. Give her a real blessing, for she is one to us!”
A New Albany resident, Christian graduated from Houston High School in 1990. After serving as a certified nursing assistant for 10 years at The Meadows in Fulton, she joined the NMMC staff nine years ago. She worked on 5 West before transferring to the Rehabilitation Institute four years ago. She also works as an admission/discharge specialist at North Mississippi Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
She received a certificate, a BEE Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and a cake. The BEE Award is given to a deserving caregiver each month at NMMC. Nomination forms are available throughout NMMC or at www.nmhs.net/bee-award. For more information, call (662) 377-3431 or email BEEAwards@nmhs.net.
