Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Announces September Colleague of the Month
Angela Whiteman of Lincoln has been named the September 2020 Colleague of the Month. Whiteman has worked at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln for over 5 years and currently serves as a community health specialist.
Whiteman supports the work of the ALMH Community Health Collaborative that works with community partners to take the focus on health outside the walls of the hospital. Many area students are familiar with her work promoting healthy eating and active lifestyles through the Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) program which encourages a heathy school environment.
To better serve patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, Whiteman is often seen in the lobby of the hospital ensuring the safety of patients and visitors through health screenings. Her flexibility to meet the needs of the hospital and provide a great patient experience was the reason for her nomination.
“I find that everyone at ALMH does their best to take care of each patient and visitor that walks through the door,” said Whiteman. “And when I work in the community, it is meaningful to me that I am part of an organization that identifies community health needs and develops solutions and initiatives to address them. The teamwork at both ALMH and in the community makes me very proud.“
Whiteman was nominated by a colleague for the honor who wanted to recognize her positive attitude and teamwork.
Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital is a 25-bed critical access hospital located at 200 Stahlhut Drive in Lincoln, Illinois. ALMH is an affiliate of Memorial Health System. For more information, visit www.ALMH.org.
