Texas County Memorial Hospital has named Leslie Mahan of Hartshorn the May employee of the month.
Mahan is a registered nurse in the surgery department at TCMH where she has worked for 17 years. Mahan was nominated for the award by her supervisor, Kim Jordan, surgery department director.
“Leslie is my ‘right hand’ when I am away from my department, and she’s a trustworthy person that won’t let you down,” Jordan said, describing Mahan as “reliable”.
“Leslie has great organizational skills, and she’s done a lot for our department in the ordering of supplies, in maintaining doctor’s preference sheets and in managing the call schedule,” Jordan said.
Jordan noted that Mahan has “great rapport” with all patients, particularly outpatient surgical patients that come in to TCMH regularly for treatments.
As employee of the month, Mahan 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 Mahan.
Mahan is eligible for the 2017 TCMH employee of the year award.
