"Cheryl is great asset to our SPA
department," wrote co-worker April Matherly, who nominated Boyd for
the honor. "She creates GREAT Patient Experiences every day. She
keeps our department spic and span and spoils our patients just as
much as we do. When we need a helping hand she is there without any
hesitation and with a smile on her face. There are days I honestly
donít know what we would do without her."
"I enjoy working at ALMH because of
my co-workers and the patients," said Boyd. "My Environmental
Service and Special Procedure Area co-workers are like family to me.
The ALMH family has shown me several times that when times get hard,
everyone is there to help you get through. The love and support for
co-workers at ALMH is awesome.
"I also enjoy the patients and
their families. I love to talk to them, help them and make them feel
welcome. In the Special Procedures Area many of our patients come
daily or weekly for years at a time so you grow to know them and
love them (and spoil them)!"

Boyd also says she has learned a lot
during her time at ALMH.
"From watching the nurses and
doctors each day, I have learned a lot of medical information, and
working in Environmental Services has taught me so much about
hospital cleanliness and its importance. The patients have also
taught me about extreme compassion and how important it is to feel
safe and cared for when receiving medical help," said Boyd.
