Brenda Becker - September Shining Star for Pella Regional

Brenda BeckerPELLA, Iowa—Brenda Becker, Pella Medical Clinic, was selected as September Shining Star by co-workers at Pella Regional Health Center.

Becker, resident of Pella, was nominated based on Attitude, Commitment, and Sense of Ownership.

Excerpts from her nomination:

“Brenda is always upbeat, friendly, courteous, encouraging and prompt. I have never heard her complain. She consistently goes above and beyond her own workload to help facilitate whatever physicians need in keeping up licensure, CME tracking, reimbursements, memberships, preceptorships, student training/orientation and assistance in practices. She is virtually always available—answering her cell phone and trying to help even when not at work. She is a perfect liaison between administration and the physicians. She has a sympathetic ear and is complimentary and attentive to others needs. I know she has a busy life outside of work but is always fully focused on what is needed at a particular time. Brenda embodies the organization’s motto of Christian compassion and caring with excellence.”

“I have watched Brenda over the years assist the physicians and administrators on many levels. She helps us as physicians and is the “glue” that holds a lot of things together. What is amazing is her humbleness and workable spirit. She keeps track of so many different topics and issues and does so cheerfully and with a positive attitude. She is always willing to help and if she can’t she will point you in the right direction. Her experience and knowledge of the many issues she has to deal with on a day to day basis is invaluable. She is supportive, trustworthy, and is an ideal employee. She displays and exemplifies the mission statements of this hospital on a daily basis. I consider her someone I rely on for assistance and also someone I can call a friend. She is a true “Shining Star.”

Shining Star is a reward and recognition program at Pella Regional designed to acknowledge an employee each month that demonstrates outstanding standards of behavior and inspires others to do their best.

Becker will receive a $100 gift, a plaque, and will automatically be included in the Shining Star of the Year award.
