Employee of the Year

TMH Employee of the YearOur employee of the year is Jolene Kloever.

Jolene’s nomination read, “Jolene is very kind with patients. She is a ‘go to’ person that shares information between departments. Jolene is always the first on the scene when I need help. Tonight she escorted a difficult patient to CT with me and had a way with calming him to get his test done. She grabbed protection and stayed with him to keep him still for his exam. She’s always there for lifting help as well. She really cares and it shows – a real asset to the team.  Jolene is always great to jump in and do anything to help out. Her great personality can put a smile on anyone’s face.”

“I’m very honored to be chosen Employee of the Year. I can’t thank everyone enough. TMH is a great place to work!” said Jolene.

Jolene works in our Emergency Department. She has been an employee of Taylorville Memorial Hospital since March 2004.
