Current Employee of the Quarter

Steven Kramp
4th Quarter 2022

Steven has been with WNH since January 2020 and is currently a Cath Lab Nurse. 

Steven’s nomination states, “When reading the criteria used to measure an employee of the quarter, each numbered item describes Steven. He gives his time for the betterment of our hospital and community. Most recently he volunteered to be available for ministry call for someone who may not have their own minister, or to be available while waiting for their own. This shows his kindness and dedication to our community and facility. He was asked to speak at the county fair last minute and he graciously agreed. He promotes goodwill at all times, is very cooperative and supportive in everything asked of him. He is definitely respected at all levels throughout the hospital. I believe he is the epitome of the ‘Standards of Performance.' WNH is blessed to have him on our team.” 

Steven will be honored at the Board of Trustees monthly meeting with a recognition award of $100. His picture will be featured on the hospital’s website, Facebook page, and the photo wall outside of the Business Office, and he will be able to park in the designated Employee of the Quarter parking stall. Congratulations, Steven! Employees like you are why WNH is such a great place to work!
