Connie Brooks of Willow Springs was recently named January employee of the month at Texas County Memorial Hospital.
Brooks is a registered nurse in the medical surgical department and has worked at TCMH for more than six years. She was nominated for the award by Doretta Todd-Willis, TCMH chief nursing officer.
“Connie is an exceptional R.N.,” Todd-Willis said.
She noted that Brooks is “very professional and compassionate to everyone.”
Brooks is known to work extra shifts when needed, and she is willing to work in other nursing departments as needed, too.
“Connie is always looking for ways to improve the care or assistance she provides to others,” Todd-Willis said.
As employee of the month, Brooks received a certificate honoring her achievement; a pin; $100 cash; a special parking place in the TCMH lot; one day of paid vacation; a membership in the TCMH Fitness Center; a $50 gift card; gift certificates to D&L Florist and to Healing Hands of Houston at New Concepts Salon; and CD of the month from KUNQ.
A reception is planned at the hospital in honor of Brooks, who is eligible for the 2011 TCMH employee of the year award.
