AdventHealth Hendersonville announced the first recipient of the Sunflower Award, presented quarterly to a certified nursing assistant for exceptional service.

Amanda Dyer, CNA, works in the intensive care unit at AdventHealth Hendersonville and was nominated for her proactive approach to work and contributions as a team member, including helping implement the proning process, an important intervention for treating patients with COVID-19 at the hospital.

“Amanda always goes over and above what is expected of her,” said Staci Jackson, BSN, RN, who nominated Dyer for the award. “She exhibits all of our service standards and keeps us all laughing with her wonderful sense of humor. I always know we will have a good day at work when I see Amanda walk in. She provides more support to the nursing staff than I have ever experienced. She is top notch and I value her greatly.”

AdventHealth Hendersonville established the quarterly Sunflower Award to recognize certified nursing assistants who commit to striving for excellence in their profession; consistently deliver patient-centered, whole-person care with integrity; embrace the opportunity to learn and grow; and integrate change to improve the health and well-being of patients, family members and guests while extending the healing ministry of Christ.

AdventHealth Hendersonville includes cardiac care and rehabilitation, emergency services, nationally awarded cancer care, state-of-the-art surgical care, full-service orthopedic care, an award-winning labor and delivery experience, as well as a full range of imaging services to help people across the region experience whole health.
