Montgomery County Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce the June Employee of the Month honor goes to Becki Franks. She is wonderful to patients and staff. She is happy and helps wherever needed. She is a diabetes educator, works ICU, ED, Pav and Cardiac Rehab. Becki also teaches CPR and PALS classes as well as teaching CEU classes for nurses and CNA's and community outreach lessons as well.  Her knowledge is great and she is always willing to share when asked. Becki is very professional and a great person to work at MCMH! She always has a smile on her face and never hesitates to help with anything. She is very compassionate and caring towards others, including patients, visitors and coworkers.

She played a big part in the Employee of the Month program and outpatient surveys. Volunteers with many organizations in Essex including Cub Scouts, Sunday School, Essex Youth Sports, Essex Fire Rescue and Essex Music Boosters.

“I have worked with her frequently over the years in ICCU and have enjoyed her expertise plus her care of the patients. While working with her I have learned a lot by listening to her teach patients, it is amazing how she explains the information so that they are able to repeat it back and understand it when we go into the room. Becki is so versatile- able to work in multiple departments with ease including ED, Cardiac Rehab, PAV, Diabetes and ICCU. When she floats to departments she is able to help out where needed without difficulty knowing the ins and outs of the department she is in, her knowledge and experience is a very valuable asset to MCMH,” states an MCMH Employee. Another MCMH Employee mentions “When I first started working at MCMH 6 years ago Becki was always very friendly and helpful whenever I needed help with anything. She is always pleasant to be around and in my opinion is a definite asset to MCMH. We are very lucky to have such a dedicated employee.”

Congratulations and thank you, Becki!
