OLEAN — Kim Murphey, secretary, nursing administration, received Olean General Hospital’s October Star Award.

“She has a great rapport with hospital staff and outside agencies. Kim is a multitasker who helps out whomever and wherever she is needed. She displays great teamwork and can often be seen volunteering her time not only at hospital events, supporting OGH in a positive manner, but out in the community volunteering for different events and causes,” said Mel Stuckey, director, patient care services, quality.

The Star Award is presented monthly to an employee who demonstrates outstanding performance and inspires the same in others.

Employees are nominated by patients or coworkers for exceptional customer satisfaction, continuous performance improvement, teamwork, communication, ownership/accountability and excellence.
