January 22, 2020 – Southeast Georgia Health System recently presented the
BEE Award to Norah Galvin, RT(N), (CT), CNMT in recognition of her quick, life-saving
response when noticing a man in distress in the Health System’s
A nuclear medicine technologist in the Health System’s Brunswick
Campus Radiology Department, Galvin was nominated for the BEE Award by
her co-worker. The BEE Award honors and recognizes team members outside
of nursing who go Beyond Exceptional Expectations.
Excerpts from the nomination included, “Norah has worked for the
Health System for more than four years and I can attest that on any given
day she is always so sweet and caring and willing to lend a hand where
needed. Thanks to her calm and caring demeanor, she was able to help save
the life of a stranger. On that fateful day, Norah went off campus to
pick up lunch for several of us in our department and as she returned
she noticed a man in distress in the Parkwood Drive visitor’s parking
lot. A man unfamiliar with our campus was attempting to get his extremely
ill brother to the Emergency Care Center. While trying to get him out
of the car, his brother collapsed to the ground and stopped breathing.
Norah, without hesitation, immediately ran over to assist with the situation.
She called 911 and started chest compressions, which she did for several
minutes until the medics arrived. I believe Norah was placed in the right
place at the right time to help save a life. She definitely went Beyond
Exceptional Expectations. Norah possess all of the qualities of an amazing
health care team member and I’m honored that she’s not only
my teammate, but also my friend.”
Galvin was presented with a BEE Award plaque and certificate by Scott Wilson,
MSA, CRA, director, Imaging 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 of flowers.
Those eligible for the
BEE Award include all Health System team members and volunteers outside of nurses

extraordinary experiences for Health System patients, their families and
visitors by exemplifying quality service and extraordinary care. Anyone
