nurse who has worked on the Medical-Surgical floor at ALMH for three
years. She received her associate's degree from Heartland Community
College in 2002.

nurse, person and co-worker.
"She is always pleasant to her patients and families, is always
available with a helping hand and never complains about her
assignment," Garvey says. "She is a great person to work with, who
gives excellent care. She goes the extra mile for her patients."
Richardson says she enjoys working at ALMH because everyone works
well together, and they manage to have fun while getting their jobs
"Nursing is a great job," she adds. "You can work in many
different areas of nursing. It is very rewarding to help someone
when they are sick or hurt."
ALMH employs more than 290 in a wide variety of job functions. A
different employee is honored each month for their commitment to
creating GREAT patient experiences, getting GREAT results, and
making ALMH a GREAT place to work.
