Kelly Zeller, physical therapy assistant at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland, was recently with the Being Extraordinary Everyday (BEE) Award.

The BEE Award was established to recognize the colleagues outside of nursing who go beyond expectations of their daily work to exemplify the hospital’s Mission and deliver outstanding service to patients.

The patient who nominated Zeller shared, “She gave me faith, compassion and encouragement. If need be, Kelly took the time to stay with me, made me laugh and smile. Totally a gift from heaven.”

Nominations for future BEE and other awards at St. Joseph’s Hospital continue to be accepted. Patients and visitors are encouraged to share and submit their story of witnessing excellent and compassionate care from staff. Award descriptions and an online nomination form can be found here.
