Armando Ortega, EVS, Recognized as a Service Hero at Morrilton

Congratulations to Armando Ortega, EVS, for for being recognized as a Service Hero at Morrilton. He put our values into action by demonstrating COMPASSION after buying a patient flowers when they were going through treatment without their family. Read a snip from his nomination:

My sister, Sharon Shewmake, was a hospice patient at Morrilton. The family had been trying to have one of us with her at all times, but this particular morning, there was a 30-60 minute gap that we were unable to be with her. Armando, had stopped by her room and noticed she had no flowers and there was no one with her. He bought her flowers and put them on a side table that she was facing, so she would see them if she opened her eyes. My heart was so touched by this kind and compassionate gesture. I believe he is well deserving of this award.
