Mercy award goes to Castleview Hospital nurse
Pam Konakis accepts an award of $500 from hospital administrator Jeff Manley during ceremonies at the facility last week. Konakis got the award for the exceptional job she does with patients. The chain of health care facilities the hospital is owned by (LifePoint) has an in-hospital contest and a national competition between representatives of all the facilities that it owns. Konakis will be competing with people from all over the country for an award of $5000, and of course the notoriety that goes with it.
