2017 Brown Award Winner

January 25, 2018

Congratulations to Rebecca Turbes, Boone County Hospital (BCH) Home Care Services, who was recently honored as the 2017 Brown Award Winner at the BCH Annual Employee Recognition Party in January.

Weldon J. Brown established the Brown Award in honor of his parents, Eunice D. and Everett C. Brown, long-time residents of Boone. Each year, hospital employees nominate co-workers for the award that demonstrates outstanding service and exceptional accomplishments. The BCH Laughs and Recognition Committee then selects one employee from all of the nominations that were submitted to be recognized.

One of Rebecca’s co-workers nominated her for the award and wrote, “Becky is a long-time employee at BCH. She is an outstanding nurse at Home Care and she represents BCH at the highest level. Becky is a peer and co-worker that others look up to within the community, as well as at BCH. She annually represents BCH in the Pufferbilly Days parade, as well as on hospital committees such as the Laughs and Recognition Committee. Becky is also active in her community and in the musical programs at Trinity Lutheran Church, and is a role model for her outstanding ability to encourage others to be physically active. Becky has a contagious energy about her that influences her peers. She represents BCH in a professional manner at all times and always has a positive upbeat personality.”

Rebecca was given an award certificate and a monetary gift for being the Brown Award winner.
