Memorial Community Health is proud to announce that Samantha Wood has been named a Nebraska Hospital Association ‘Caring Kind’ award recipient for 2016.  For 37 years, The Caring Kind award has been given to Nebraska’s most caring hospital workers – those who have demonstrated compassion for patients, cooperation with co-workers, and dedication to excellence in their job responsibilities. 

Wood is a Registered Nurse at Memorial Community Health in Aurora. She was selected for the award based upon her teamwork, leadership, and willingness to go above and beyond in caring for patients.  As best said by one of her co-workers, “Samantha Wood is the kind of nurse you would want caring for you or your family members.”  Wood received the award at the 37th Annual Caring Kind Awards Luncheon on October 14th during the Nebraska Hospital Association’s Annual Convention at the Embassy Suites Omaha-LaVista Hotel & Conference Center.
