"Peggy's willingness to work in any capacity to insure our patients receive quality care has earned her the respect of all associates," said Belinda Campbell, Director of Human Resources. "Whether she is being called to start an IV in Radiology, triage a patient in the ED or transfer a patient to Med/Surg, her response is always the same; 'I'll be right there.'"
Mrs. Barmore said she feels nursing chose her, that the years have proved that she is only a person providing care to the best of her ability, and that there is a Greater Power.
"Her dedication and positive attitude is an inspiration, not only to our staff, but our patients and the community," said Campbell.
Created by the Georgia Hospital Association (GHA), this designation celebrates and showcases the commitment and caring that hospital employees bring to their job, community, and to the Georgia health care industry. The G.R.E.A.T. Ambassador Program, which stands for Giving Recognition for Excellence, Advocacy, and Teamwork, provides hospital employees the opportunity to tell their personal stories about how they chose a health care profession, why they like their job and what they like about working for their hospital.
"Peggy Barmore is an ideal recipient for McDuffie Regional Medical Center's G.R.E.A.T. Ambassador Recognition. She represents everything MRMC stands for: putting the patient first. We're very fortunate to have her on our staff," said Douglas Keir, MRMC CEO.
