In Celebration of National Case Management Week last month, Angel MedFlight sponsored its 2nd Annual Get Away Giveaway Contest. We thank all of the healthcare professionals who entered the contest throughout October and generously shared their insights on air medical transports. We value all of the opinions that we received and aim to incorporate the suggestions in our 2017 communication plans.
Our winners were randomly selected on Thursday, November 3 from more than 1,200 contest entrants. Each received an $800 airfare voucher on the airline of his and her choice.
Charles Hart – Case Management Appreciation First Contest Winner
Committed to Finding Solutions For Patients & Families
Charles Hart is dedicated healthcare professional accustomed to multitasking and problem solving, which is essential for his case management role in Anchorage, Alaska.
After retiring from the Air Force, Charles earned his nursing degree five years ago. Now he uses his ingenuity to help patients and their families navigate challenging healthcare situations. In fact, one of his favorite responsibilities is coordinating long-range air medical transfers for his patients. Logistics coordination within a tight timeframe is his specialty.
Charles plans to use his $800 in airfare to take his wife somewhere warm and bright during the long Alaskan winter. Angel MedFlight thanks Charles for his dedication and we wish him a safe trip with plenty of sunny days!
Megan Mollere – Case Management Appreciation Second Contest Winner
Compassion and Determination Make a Positive Impact
Although she is relatively new to case management, social worker Megan Mollere already understands the importance of her role for her patients and their families. She is thankful that she can make such a positive impact and finds helping others very rewarding. Her compassion, enthusiasm, and upbeat personality are instrumental in her success. She treasures the relieved look on her patients’ faces when she solves their transitions of care concerns.
Megan’s positive influence is not limited to her patients. Hospital physicians, staff members, and patients’ families all know that Megan will greet them with a smile and a hug, determined to help any way she can. For her case management colleagues across the country, Megan encourages them to “continue the amazing work you do. Your work is incredibly beneficial to your patients…even if they never tell you.”
Megan hopes to use her $800 airfare voucher to take an international vacation with her husband in 2017. Angel MedFlight is grateful to work with caring professionals like Megan and we wish her a wonderful trip!
