TUPELO, Miss.—Debra Garth of Environmental Services recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award for July.

Garth was nominated by a family member of a patient on 2 West. “She cleaned our room with great detail,” she wrote, noting that edges, corners and the bathroom were all spotless. “Very delightful personality and (she) brought extra wash cloths and towels.”

The nomination also noted that Garth’s attention to detail was outstanding. “Even the tips of the toilet tissue were folded like a Five Star hotel,” it states. “The hospital should cherish people that go above and beyond to help the caregivers and family feel comfortable and safe because of cleanliness.”

An Okolona resident, Garth has been an Environmental Services technician at NMMC since 2018.

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 For more information, call (662) 377-3431 or email
