Gronewold given ‘Caring Kind’ award

Gothenburg’s Myra Gronewold is one of 76 hospital workers statewide to be recognized by the Nebraska Hospital Association with the “Caring Kind” award for excellence in service.

For more than 30 years, the Caring Kind award has been given to Nebraska’s most caring hospital workers. The award honors outstanding health care employees who have demonstrated compassion for patients, cooperation with co-workers and dedication to excellence in their job responsibilities.

Gronewold, a registered nurse who is the director of the Gothenburg Memorial Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Department, was nominated in recognition of what she gives to the hospital as well as out in the community.

“She is a strong advocate for our hospital, her department and the great work done in Cardiac Rehab,” said Marsha Engel, GMH human services director.

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

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

More than 2,000 dedicated health care professionals have received this award since its inception in 1979.

This year, 76 employees were honored at the 34th Anniversary of the Caring Kind Awards luncheon held Oct. 25 in La Vista.
