Shine Award Winner

Amber Hopp
Nursing assistant/ED tech 

Amber Hopp, a nursing assistant/ED tech in the Methodist Jennie Edmundson Emergency Department, has been honored with the first Shine Award presented at Jennie Edmundson.

Emergency Department nurse Tracie Kerns nominated Hopp, saying:

“Amber is a very strong asset to our department. A perfect example is when a STEMI is called in to the ER. She is very efficient with contacting the cath lab team, paging the cardiology doctor immediately and making sure we have effective communication to provide the best care possible for positive outcomes for the patient. She is the rock of our emergency department! She always goes above and beyond for her coworkers and our patients and their families!”

Congratulations, Amber, on receiving the Shine Award. We thank you for all your hard work to help your coworkers and patients in the emergency room. Thank you for showing that Jennie cares.
