In its inaugural year, more than 90 individuals and teams were nominated by their peers for going above and beyond to care for the communities they serve every day. Winners were selected by a majority vote from MHA staff.

Congratulations to our outstanding nominees!  

You are champions in our hearts!!

Jane Young, Samaritan Hospital

Jane is a caring and unique caregiver, her heart is her biggest asset! She has been in the health care field for many years, and as the Director of Nursing and Administrator, she goes above and beyond every single day. There is not a staff member in our hospital or surrounding hospitals that does not recognize how amazing she is. She can fill in pretty much any and all departments in the hospital and never is too busy to help a coworker. Her love for her patients is seen in all aspects of care. Her leadership is undeniably what every leader should strive to be like. Jane is involved in the community in numerous ways, as well. Without a doubt when she retires, they will need to hire 20 people to replace her!


Specialty Care Clinic, Samaritan Memorial Hospital

These Nurses are providing top-notch care to rural Missouri. They are our co-workers, our neighbors, our friends and they take caring to the next level. My family has been extremely blessed to have their help and experience. They were wonderful when my mother was using the clinic with her infusions and visiting the rheumatologist. Now my husband is using the clinic for bladder issues, and these ladies have been outstanding with their help and compassion
