[January 28, 2010]  Greg Willis was surprised to learn he was Employee of the Month for Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in October. Two months later, he was shocked to learn he was named ALMH Employee of the Year.

His co-workers, however, weren't the least bit surprised. A certified registered nurse anesthetist, he has been providing great patient experiences in Lincoln for the last decade.

Hardware"He makes you feel at ease about something you have absolutely no control over," said co-worker Debra Ackerman. "His tone of voice was very comforting to me as a patient. Greg gives great patient care. He is also a great co-worker."

Always upbeat and friendly in the halls of ALMH, Willis lives in Lincoln and has worked at the hospital for more than 10 years. He says he appreciates the varied and demanding challenges of his job, as well as the people he works with daily.

"ALMH fosters a culture of ‘family' among the staff," he said. "There's general warmth and good nature of all in the ALMH family."

Dolan Dalpoas, president and CEO of ALMH, says being recognized by peers for doing good work is one of the highest honors an employee can receive.

"Greg is a terrific example of the caliber of employees at ALMH," Dalpoas said. "He is an expert in his profession and he deploys his skills in a compassionate manner. He puts the patients' needs above everything else. People like Greg are the key reason why ALMH is so successful."
