Greene County General Hospital is proud to recognize Tim Johnson as the first winner of the PETAL Award, an employee recognition award that honors non-nursing staff for Performing Exceptional Tasks and Affirming Lives.
Tim has been part of the GCGH team since 1999, and works as an Occupational Therapist in the Physical Therapy Department. He was nominated by two of his former patients, one of whom lovingly referred to him as his “drill sergeant,” and credited his therapy sessions with relieving the tremendous pain he experienced after a rotator cuff surgery.
Other nominees included Gerri Jackson, Kelsey Schilt, Sherry Gaither, Joshua Wolfe, and Candice Tatlock.
The PETAL employee recognition program identifies employees who serve as models to the community for professional achievement and reinforce Greene County General Hospital’s commitment to recognizing outstanding performance. The PETAL award is given three times a year to a non-nursing employee who exemplifies extraordinary service in the performance of their job.
The PETAL award was established for non-nursing staff to align with the DAISY award for nursing staff. Nominations are accepted year round, and forms can be found in each of the hospital’s waiting areas as well as online at GreeneCountyHosptial.com.
