Nancy L. Meade, a registered nurse for Day Kimball Medical Group has been named the latest employee of the month at Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH).
For the last eight years, Meade has been working in the Day Kimball Medical Group Family Medicine practice in Danielson, primarily with Dr. Andrea Gutierrez, DO. She also supports four other physicians and a nurse practitioner at the Danielson practice. She is responsible for patient triage, answering phone calls, training other staff and providing care and support to patients and their families.
According to Nancy Zamagni, Physician Office Liaison/ EMR Trainer for Day Kimball Medical Group, “Nancy is a very outgoing, dedicated RN that watches out for her patients at all times. She is a true advocate for them. Over the years she has gotten to know them well and will coach, remind, lecture when needed, provide praise and the like. They become part of her extended family and she treats them as such. She is a definite asset to the Medical Group with her many years of experience.”
Meade’s career in the medical field spans some 27 years, with most of those years being spent at DKH. She began working at Day Kimball Hospital as a medical/surgical clinical coordinator in 1989. She also worked in ACU, rheumatology and plastic surgery clinics, as well as for Dr. Ronald J. Franzino, MD, who specializes in general and laparoscopic surgery. From 1998-2008 she worked for Orthopedic Associates, which is now The Center for Bone and Joint Care.
Upon hearing about this recognition, Meade said, “I was amazed and had goose bumps when I learned about being named employee of the month. It is nice to know that your peers think so highly of you.”
Meade was born in Dayville and now lives in Danielson. She obtained her RN degree from St. Francis Hospital School of Nursing, Hartford, CT.
