Associate Recognition

Gold Star Award

Noel Hain

Congratulations to Noel Hain of our Lab Department for receiving the VCHS Gold Star Award!

Noel was nominated by one of his co-worker and her story was so compelling we wanted to share it with you:

"On December 3rd, my daughter was brought to our ER and had to receive a CT scan. Noel covered my call while we were in ER and came in and ran my daughter’s lab-work. On December 23rd, we were again in the ER, and Noel stopped by that afternoon to see how she was doing, and to ask if we needed anything. Then on December 26th, we had an appointment with the neurologist in Kearney, and I was scheduled to work 11:30am-6pm. Our appointment was set up for 10:00, so I knew I was going to miss a big part of the day. Noel saw that we were going to be really short on staff, so he went to Karen, Lab Manager, and offered to work that Friday even though he should have been of vacation. On top of that, he sent me a text while we were at the hospital having a procedure done, asking how she was and told me not to worry about work, which set my mind at ease! Later that night he brought my daughter over soup that he made after he got off work.

Noel is not only a great employee, but also a wonderful Christian! Words can not express how thankful I am to my friend & co-worker for all his kindness."

Whether at work or in the community, Noel exemplifies high values through his character!

Congratulations Noel, you are a Gold Shining Star!
