Beebe Healthcare recognized discharge planner Liz Dean as the August 2018 LOVE — Living Our Values Everyday — Letter Award recipient.

Dean developed the Positive Energy Committee within her department. One of the initiatives of this committee was to have each team member draw the name of another team member, for whom they would do a random act of kindness within the month.

“Liz made a difference within our department by implementing a program that brings out the warmth in all of us,” said Ann Regacho, discharge planner, who wrote Liz’s LOVE Note. “This positive energy glows on as we work with our patients.

Beebe Healthcare’s LOVE Letter Recognition Program was established in 2015 and gives team members the opportunity to be recognized by their peers and supervisors for their service. The program is similar to an employee of the month program. Team members are encouraged to send LOVE notes to other team members during the course of the month. A committee evaluates the LOVE notes and selects one to receive the monthly LOVE Letter. Winners are announced in a ceremony in which the committee visits the winner in his or her department and presents the award.

Employees selected for the award receive parking space in the parking garage for one month, a $100 gift card donated by Fred and Lyndie Hertrich, 100 points toward Beebe LOVE Notes merchandise, the 100th anniversary history book “Two Men With a Dream: The Story of Beebe Healthcare,” a letter of congratulations and personal visit from members of the executive team, their photo added to the LOVE Letter wall plaque and a letter to team member’s director and department recognition
