Govan Receives RMC's First “Honey Award”
Pat Govan was honored recently with the Regional Medical Center’s first “Honey Award”. This award was developed by the Shared Governance Quality Council, is modeled after the Daisy Award for registered nurses, and will be presented twice a year.
The “Honey Award” is presented in memory of Wyomie Honeycutt, a native of Elloree, who was a certified nursing assistant at RMC for 20 years; and who felt strongly about the importance of sensitivity, friendliness and having a positive attitude to help make the patient’s hospital stay as comfortable as possible. Honeycutt retired in 2001 and passed away in 2008.
A native of St. Matthews, Govan began her career at RMC 12 years ago on the third west nursing unit and has remained there.
A certified nursing assistant for 24 years, Govan is pursuing a career as a registered nurse and has begun taking classes.
She has two children, Jeremy, 19; and Courtney, 17. In her spare time Govan enjoys singing in her church choir, gardening, especially flowers, and playing with her two dogs. She is a member of Jerusalem Baptist Church in Fort Motte.
