June 25, 2020 – Southeast Georgia Health System recently presented the
BEE Award to Kimberly (Kim) Boltiador in recognition of her willingness to go the
extra mile for her team members.
A department support coordinator in the Health System’s Brunswick Campus
Laboratory Services, Boltiador was nominated for the BEE Award by a fellow team member. The
BEE Award honors and recognizes team members outside of nursing who go
Beyond Exceptional Expectations.
Excerpts from the nomination included, “Ms. Kim is an amazing person
to work with and is always the first to volunteer where help is needed.
She is our team’s go-to person when there is a problem or if we
just need help. Just watching her work is awesome. She’s the first
to offer assistance for patient lab draws, fill in process or receiving,
go to the Outpatient Care Center to cover when needed or volunteer her
time at our annual health fair. When the new phlebotomist computer carts
arrived, Kim immediately jumped at the opportunity to learn about the
new programs so she could help when needed and volunteered to assist the
phlebotomists the first few days of use. If Kim runs across errors, she’s
quick to say ‘this is only a learning lesson’ rather than
putting the blame on anyone. She encourages everyone and creates a delightful
working atmosphere with her positive mindset.”
Boltiador was presented with a BEE Award plaque and certificate by Brendon
Winstead, MBA, MT(ASCP), FACHE, director, Laboratory Services, in front
of her peers and Health System leadership. She also received a BEE pin,
balloons, honey danishes to share with her team, and a beautiful bouquet
Those eligible for the BEE Award include all Health System team members
and volunteers outside of nurses (RNs and LPNs may receive the DAISY Award).
These team members provide extraordinary experiences for Health System
patients, their families and visitors by exemplifying quality service
and extraordinary care.
