Jamestown  (JRMC)   — Jamestown Regional Medical Center (JRMC) recently announced Dann Holm as its most recent Legend Award recipient.

The Legend Award is the most prestigious distinction for a JRMC employee. The Legend Award recognizes employees who exceed expectations and make THE difference in the lives of those they serve.

JRMC Rehabilitation Manager, Tracy Anderson, nominated Holm because of his compassion that he demonstrates to his fellow coworkers, patients and guests.

“Ben Mathews, one of our rehab aides, was having car troubles and shared this with Cindy Nelms in Plant Operations. Ben is from England and has no family in the United States.”

Anderson wrote. “Nelms told Mathews to visit with Holm in Plant Operations, as he is handy with fixing vehicles. Holm kindly drove with Mathews to Kensal, N.D., where he proceeded to fix Mathews’ vehicle. Holm took time out of his work schedule to display kindness and offer a helping hand to his coworker.”

Holm joined the JRMC team in 2008 and resides in Kensal, N.D.

Mathews says, “He is a real legend and a top bloke,” Mathews said.

JRMC’s 350 employees cast anonymous votes to select the Legend Award winner.

The purpose of the Legend Award is to inspire, motivate and capture the moments that define JRMC. The goal is to help employees and volunteers connect to the sense of purpose that brought them to the organization. This award is for employees who’ve made extreme efforts to benefit their patients and colleagues.

JRMC Chief Nursing Officer and Interim President & CEO, Trisha Jungels, says,  “The nominations inspire staff members to continually be the best, exceed expectations and make THE difference in the lives of those we serve.”

Once nominated, both JRMC administration and employees voted on their favorite nominees and their stories.

Chief Operating Officer Ricki Ramlo adds, “We are grateful for our employees’ commitment to patients and our community.  Dann is a great example of THE difference our employees make in the lives of those we serve.”

The Legend Award first began in 2012. Since then, more than 30 individuals have been named Legends and more than 105 employees were nominated.
