Kristin McNaughton - Methodist Women's Hospital Employee of the Quarter

Kristin McNaughton, pharmacist, is the Methodist Women’s Hospital Employee of the Quarter for the third quarter of 2019. She was honored at a recognition ceremony on June 6.

Kristin was nominated for the honor by coworkers who described her as an excellent representation of Methodist's mission and vision.

“Kristin is always a positive presence on the units,” one of the nominators said. "She is always patient and willing to assist all employees with their questions and needs. She is always open to field questions from staff and never makes anyone feel their questions are insignificant."

Her ability to perform her duties while anticipating the needs of the staff to ensure the best outcomes for patients and excellent working conditions for staff were also noted by her nominators.

“She goes above and beyond her duties by cross-checking all our orders carefully and taking the time to see what's best for our patients. She also takes the time to educate us on certain medications, coming to our units personally to bring us emergent medications or explain complicated medications to us. She is also so respectful to everyone.”


The Methodist Women's Hospital Employee of the Quarter award program began in the first quarter of 2013. Award nominations may be submitted by physicians, supervisors, coworkers and staff. Judging is based on how candidates embody the mission and core values of Methodist Women’s Hospital: patient focus, integrity, excellence, learning, compassion, teamwork and respect.
