Judy Willer--April Shining Star for Pella Regional

Judy Willer, Shining StarPELLA, Iowa— Judy Willer, Surgery, was selected as April Shining Star by co-workers at Pella Regional Health Center.

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

Excerpts from her nomination:
“Several weeks ago, one of our physicians requested an Endoscopy to be brought up to use in the ICU. A nurse had gone down to Surgery looking for what was requested. The Surgery staff members were just getting ready to go home. Judy was very kind and stayed to assist with the procedure. Because there were two large carts of equipment, Judy offered to help out. She also offered to stay and help the physician with the equipment. She then returned everything to Surgery. Judy was a life-saver that night and so very much appreciated.”

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.

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