Woods Named Decatur Memorial Hospital Colleague of the Year
Dec. 31, 2020…DECATUR – Dimitra Woods, a registered nurse in the Decatur Memorial Hospital intensive care unit, is the hospital’s Colleague of the Year.
Woods personifies Memorial Health System values as she works directly with patients and clinical staff and provides compassionate care, Amber Vest, Woods’ supervisor, said.
Woods has a way of seeing “through the eyes of her patients’ families,” Vest said. “That type of care is more important now than it has ever been when families are unable to be with their loved ones at the bedside.”
Woods “lives our mission at Memorial Health System: to improve the health of the people and communities we serve,” Vest said. “She takes her time to put her patients and their families first.”
Woods has worked in healthcare since 1998, initially as a certified nursing assistant. She has worked as a registered nurse in the intensive care unit since 2004.
Woods was the Decatur Memorial Hospital Colleague of the Month for November 2020.
