Amanda Fletcher Honored with Caring Kind Award

November 6, 2017


Amanda Fletcher, a Registered Nurse in the Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center Nursery, was among 65 hospital workers honored with this year’s Nebraska Hospital Association’s prestigious “Caring Kind” award.


For 38 years, the Caring Kind award has been given to Nebraska's most caring and compassionate hospital employees. The award honors outstanding healthcare employees who have demonstrated compassion for patients, cooperation with co-workers and dedication to excellence in their job responsibilities.


Hospitals across the state each select one Caring Kind award recipient from within their respective institutions to be recognized during the NHA annual convention.


At BCHHC, employees are nominated by their co-workers for the Caring Kind honor. Employees then vote to select the final nominee with the announcement made at an organization-wide celebration.


As a Registered Nurse in the BCHHC Nursery, Fletcher is responsible for caring for newborns and helping new moms and dads become comfortable with caring for the new addition to their families. In the nomination for the Caring Kind award, Fletcher’s co-workers said: “During an ice storm Amanda offered to stay after her 12-hour shift to help me with my duties. She creates an environment for organizational workforce learning and performance. … Amanda supports fellow employees, will offer help when possible and cooperates in the workplace. She truly appreciates others and the value of the work we do.”


Fletcher started working as a Licensed Practical Nurse in the hospital nursery in 2010. She went on to become a Registered Nurse and is now cross-training to work in the Labor and Delivery Department. Fletcher lives in Beatrice with her husband, Darrick, and their three daughters, Haleigh, Hannah and Kinsley.


“The Caring Kind award recipients demonstrate the kindness, caring, dedication and commitment that exemplifies why healthcare in Nebraska continues to be among the best in the nation,” NHA President Laura J. Redoutey said. “The NHA is proud to recognize these outstanding healthcare workers who have made a tremendous difference in the lives of their patients, co-workers, hospitals and communities.”
