Marilyn Becker named a Health Care Hero
Marilyn Becker, RN, a nurse at St. Marys Hospital since 1984, was recently named a statewide Health Care HeroMarilyn Becker, RN, receives the Award as a Health Care Hero in the Nursing Category from Iris Hawley who accepted the plaque at a Boise ceremony hosted by the Idaho Business Review, IHA, IMA, ISU and other health entities. in Nursing by the Idaho Business Review in Boise.  The award was presented at a banquet attended by 29 Health Care Hero nominees from around the state.  Becker was unable to attend the October 1 ceremony due to a prior commitment, but Iris Hawley, SMHC Director of Nursing Services, accepted the award on her behalf.
The IBR has annually honored individuals in the health care field for the past four years.  Each of the categories names three nominees, one of which is eventually named as the hero.  Categories include community outreach, elder/hospice care, physician, volunteer, rehabilitation and emergency services.  In 2007 Dr. Maurice Masar was named hero in the volunteer category and Casey Meza was selected as the hero in the professional category. 
The special edition magazine featured Becker along with the other 29 nominees. I am truly humbled by this award.  I earned it for doing what I enjoy doing, working with our inpatients, said Becker.  In surgery and ER, you are with a patient on a temporary basis, but when a patient is on the floor, you get to interact with them on a daily basis.  Its very gratifying.  Becker has worked at SMH for 45 years and was honored this September at the annual hospital employee picnic.
Partners in the IBR award program are Idaho State University, the Idaho Hospital Association, the Idaho Medical Association, the Idaho Health Care Association, PacificSource Health Plans and the Medical Group Management Association.
