CEO Dolan Dalpoas presented Albert
with the honor Dec. 7 at the annual ALMH Holiday Celebration and
Awards Night at the Knights of Columbus.
Albert works as a linen technician in
environmental services. Her positive attitude is what caught the
attention of her nominators and the ALMH Employee Activity
Committee, who awarded the honor.
"Cathy's heart is as big as they
get, and she is such a help to us, besides taking care of linen
every day ... which is no easy task. She is always there when you
need help and will do a person's work when they are off that day and
never complain," her co-workers said in the nomination.
Cathy was born at St. Clara's
Hospital in Lincoln and has lived in Lincoln most of her life, with
the exception of some time living in Springfield. She and her
husband, Tom, have three daughters, Tina, Desirae and Kaya, and a
son, Floyd. She also has three grandsons, Kyle, Alex and Braydon,
and a great-grandson, Riley.
She enjoys scrapbooking, working in
the garden, walking and attending her family's sporting events.
Albert has been an employee of ALMH
for 28 years. She likes working at the hospital because she loves
seeing patients happy when she cleans their rooms and takes pride in
lending a helping hand if she meets someone in the hallway and helps
them find their way.
"ALMH is a great place to work. I
have a great boss, great co-workers, and we do great things for the
patients we serve," said Albert.
