[January 31, 2014]  Arlene DeWilde of Lincoln has been named the January Employee of the Month at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital. DeWilde has worked at ALMH for 30 years. In addition to her current role in materials management, she has served as a nurseís aide and in sterilizing.

Materials management plays a critical role at ALMH. As a team, the department checks and restocks the supplies throughout the hospital. They check in new shipments so that everything is cataloged into inventory, from pens to medical equipment. They also oversee incoming and outgoing mail. DeWilde is specifically responsible for ordering supplies for the surgery, SPA and anesthesia departments.

She was nominated anonymously by a co-worker who said: "Arlene always has a smile on her face. No matter how busy she may be, she always takes a moment to say hello. She is also willing to help. She is a pleasure to deal with. She is a true example of a great employee."

DeWilde said she loves working at ALMH "because of the caring people who work here. She added: "Employees care not only for the patients who come here but also for each other. I canít imagine working anywhere else. We are all blessed to have ALMH."
