Strader named ALMH Nurse of the Year

[JULY 1, 2003]  John Strader was recently named the 2003 Nurse of the Year at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.

Strader is a registered nurse and has worked with patients in the Med/Surg unit at ALMH for the past three years. He was a nurse at Memorial Medical Center for 19 years prior to coming to ALMH.

The ALMH Radiology Department nominated John for the honor. In the nomination, they wrote: "John always has a pleasant word for you and is always willing to lend a helping hand. He constantly goes out of his way to coordinate complicated treatments and tests and keeps the patient's best interest as his foremost priority. John takes the time to inquire about special circumstances about each case so that he can give correct information to the family."

"I enjoy working at ALMH because I actually get to be with my patients and their families here more than if I was working in a big hospital," says John.
