Kathy Cannatelli receives Beebe’s September L.O.V.E. Letter Award

September 28, 2017

Beebe Healthcare recognized Kathy Cannatelli, nurse practitioner with Beebe Vascular, as the September Living Our Values Every Day Letter Award recipient. Rachel Corbin, a medical assistant with Beebe Vascular, nominated Cannatelli for the award.

"Kathy recently overheard that my beloved childhood teddy bear had a brutal attack by a dog and was practically annihilated. It saddened me terribly because I did not have the sewing skills to repair him. I have had the bear more than 20 years. Kathy told me to bring him to her and she would be more than happy to fix him ... She texted me updates on my bear's progress throughout the whole surgery," said Corbin. "Kathy presented me with a freshly stitched bear, wearing a tie and a smile. It brought me to tears that my co-worker would go above and beyond for me this way. It is another instance of why our office is so great and that they are more of a family than just co-workers."

Cannatelli was recognized for building trusting relationships with compassion and kindness, and for acting with a passion and love for others to make a difference.

Jeffrey Fried, FACHE, president and CEO; Rick Shaffner, executive vice president and COO; and Jeffrey Hawtof, MD, vice president of medical operations and informatics, made the presentation and congratulated Cannatelli.

Winners are announced in a surprise ceremony in which the committee visits the winner in his or her department and presents the award. Employees selected for the award receive a parking space in the parking garage for one month; a $100 gift card; 100 points toward Beebe L.O.V.E. Notes Merchandise; a letter of congratulations and personal visit from members of the executive team; their photo added to the L.O.V.E. Letter wall plaque; and a letter to the team member's director and department recognition.
