Dyer never imagined that doing the right thing would land her as employee of the second quarter for 2011 at St. Luke’s Hospital.
Dyer has worked at St. Luke’s Hospital for three and a half years. She enjoys her job, the patients, her co-workers and has a definite love for St. Luke’s Hospital.
“I wish everyone could feel the sense of loyalty and family we have here at St. Luke’s,” said Dyer. “It’s a wonderful feeling.”
“I have seen on a number of occasions where Amanda makes sure to get extra blood when drawing labs because she had a feeling the doctor would order more lab work,” said Jody Flynn, lab manager. “Instead of having to go back and re-stick the patient, she already had the blood necessary for the additional labs! Amanda also has a wonderful bedside manner with patients – she fully explains the process and is so kind and caring.
She is also dependable and gets along well with all of her co-workers. She is such a gem!”
Co-Worker, Shelly Criswell agreed, “Amanda stayed at work when she had a loss in her family. Our department had several employees that were out for training and Amanda did not leave because she did not want us to feel the strain of her being gone. That is dedication to this hospital, the lab and her co-workers.”
When not working, Dyer enjoys spending time with her family. She lives in Landrum with her husband, Kenneth, and two children, Zachary and Madison. Dyer is also the choir director at Silver Creek Baptist Church. As employee of the quarter, Dyer received a monetary award and designated parking space at the hospital.
By making sure residents of our community receive the services they need, St. Luke’s Hospital continues to provide care, close to home.
