Jennifer Gunter, of Bucyrus, is the September employee of the month at Texas County Memorial Hospital.
Gunter is a registered nurse in the TCMH medical surgical department. She has worked at the hospital since June 2014.
Gunter was nominated for the award by her supervisor John Sawyer, medical surgical department and intensive care unit nurse manager.
“Jennifer promotes a positive culture in the department, especially when she works on the night shift,” Sawyer said. “Jennifer makes night shift a pleasant place to work.”
Gunter is often requested by the emergency and intensive care departments when an extra set of hands is needed. She also serves as a preceptor to new nurses training at TCMH.
“Jennifer is very versatile, and I’m grateful to have her working in my department,” Sawyer said.
As employee of the month Gunter 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 TQ’s House of Barbecue.
A reception will be at the hospital in honor of Gunter, who is eligible for the 2016 TCMH employee of the year award.
