Salida, Colorado - Allysha Moore of Buena Vista was honored as Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center's TRAC STAR of the Second Quarter at a hospital ceremony on July 30. Moore is a registered nurse at the HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center.
"Allysha exemplifies all the qualities of a TRAC STAR," wrote the HRRMC employee who nominated her for the award. The hospital's TRAC STAR embodies the core values that guide employee performance: teamwork, recognition, attitude, customer service, safety, talent, accountability and respect.
Moore was praised for helping to introduce Buena Vista Health Center staff to NextGen, an electronic health record program. "As one of the core team members at BVHC, Allysha has been instrumental in our success with learning the complex NextGen program," wrote her nominator. "Allysha is a gifted educator and has shown extreme patience with staff struggling to learn the program."
Barbara Abel, vice president of Human Resources, presented Moore with a $200 gift check, a fleece jacket with the hospital's TRAC logo, and a certificate to be professionally photographed. A plaque with her photo will be displayed in the hospital.
The two other second-quarter finalists, switchboard operator Geovanna Archuleta and Emergency Department nurse Shelly Carlos, were also recognized at the ceremony.
Carlos was described in her nomination as "an excellent nurse; very professional…Shelly puts patients first and willingly helps with projects in the ER. (She) comes in on her days off for sick calls. Shelly has worked for HRRMC for a long time and deserves to be recognized for her professional and outstanding nursing!"
Archuleta's nomination noted her calm demeanor when handling a busy switchboard and her ability to translate for Spanish patients. "Geo never has a harsh word to say and always has an upbeat personality," wrote her nominator. "Even with everything Geo does, she always has time to help others."
HRRMC employees can nominate any of their colleagues for the TRAC STAR award. Members of the hospital's Communications Team review all nominations, then cast individual ballots to determine the top three finalists. All finalists are eligible to be named TRAC STAR of the Year.
