Texas County Memorial Hospital has named Cora Turnbull of Bucyrus the August employee of the month.
Turnbull is a paramedic in the emergency medical services department at TCMH, and she has worked in that position since December 2008. Turnbull was nominated for the award by her supervisor, Bill Bridges, EMS director.
Turnbull was hired to work in the TCMH EMS department while she was deployed to Iraq. After completing her term of service, Turnbull started out as a basic emergency medical technician at TCMH; then Turnbull trained to become a paramedic.
“Cora strives to complete daily duties in a timely manner, and she provides excellent patient care,” Bridges said.
Bridges noted that Turnbull is a resource to fellow employees that need assistance with paperwork and billing for services.
“Cora is a solid and consistent employee in the EMS department,” Bridges said.
As employee of the month, Turnbull received a certificate honoring her achievement; a pin; a special parking place in the TCMH lot; one day of paid vacation; a $50 gift card, and gift certificates to Paws N Claws, D&L Florist; Blissful Nirvana Massage, Wehr Motors, and Savor Grill. A reception will be held at the hospital in honor of Turnbull.
Turnbull is eligible for the 2017 TCMH employee of the year award.
