Anderson Healthcare Presents First Lily Award

May 6, 2024

Congratulations to the first ever winner of our Lily Award at Anderson Healthcare…Trish Wadkins in Radiology at Community Hospital of Staunton!

Trish was selected as the 1st Quarter 2024 winner out of more than 150 nominations! Trish received 4 nominations, 2 from patients and 2 from staff. We celebrated with Trish and her department recently along with Administration from CHS.

As a reminder, Anderson Healthcare initiated the Lily Program this year as a spin off from the Daisy Program. While the Daisy Program recognizes excellent nurses, the Lily Program is an opportunity to recognize the many employees in other roles throughout the healthcare organization! The criteria the Lily Committee looked for in the nominations are as follows:

  • Models empathy and demonstrates a caring attitude in all situations with customers.
  • Demonstrates extraordinary skills in their role.
  • Has a positive attitude and demonstrates professionalism in the work environment.
  • Exemplifies the mission, vision and values of Anderson Hospital, abides by the code of excellence and code of conduct.
  • Establishes a special connection with the patients, families or coworkers.

A few comments from her nominations include:

  • I was scared and didn’t know what to expect. She walked me through every step and every action to make me more comfortable. She was very gentle and kind and made every effort to make the process as painless as possible.
  • I had an abnormal mammogram in the past and I was scared to come back in because it had been a couple of years and she took her time and was SO respectful, explained everything – very knowledgeable and made my anxiety go way down.
  • Trish always goes above and beyond to ensure her patients’ comfort and safety. She is an advocate for each one of her patients.
  • She is constantly showing me how I can do better with patient care, without even telling me.
