Florence Hymes, Patient Service Associate on H8
Please join the Center for Nursing Excellence in congratulating Florence Hymes for being selected as the January BEE Award winner!
Florence is a Patient Service Associate on H8 and was nominated by a co-worker. The following is the story of how Florence impacted their life in a way that they will never forget.
Florence has been with UAMS for over 20 years. She goes above and beyond each day. Florence has the kindest spirit of anyone I’ve ever met. Even on the hardest days, you can look to Florence (Flo) for a beautiful smile or a hug. While her job primarily has her working the desk, Florence is constantly all over the unit making sure patients are taken care of and her co-workers don’t drown. On top of working 16-shifts here on H8, Florence spends her time outside of UAMS as a caregiver. She also picks up overtime on days when she’s not supposed to be here. So, basically, Florence (Flo) spends each day of her life helping others feel loved and cared for. Florence (Flo) does not have “off” days. Also, even though she has been offered other opportunities close by Florence (Flo) continues to stay loyal to her staff and her patients, even though she doesn’t have to. Florence is a gift to this floor and a beautiful person inside and out and we are so lucky to have her on H8.
Way to go Florence! 35 years at UAMS and going strong.
Please congratulate Florence for Being Exceptional Every day at UAMS!
