Brown Award Winner Announced
Congratulations to Dena Sytsma, Family Birth Center (FBC) Director, for receiving the Brown Award. The Eunice D. and Everett C. Brown Award is designed to honor an employee who does outstanding work, participates in hospital activities in addition to his or her job, and provides a positive image for Boone County Hospital. Dena was nominated by a co-worker that said, “Dena is a committed director who is continuously striving to better her department, build relationships with and encourage the growth of her co-workers, and provides outstanding patient care... The staff who work in the FBC with her have spoke numerous time about how lucky they are to have her as a director. She will frequently come in on her day off or in the middle of the night when help is needed. The co-worker added, “Dena has worked hard to ensure that the FBC is a strong, cohesive team that provides high-quality care to their patients. Dena has a great rapport with her co-workers both professionally and personally, and she pushes them to continue to better themselves and the department.”
