Angie Huff named November 2021 CMH TULIP Award winner

Angie Huff, a medical assistant with Osceola Medical Center in Osceola, was named the November 2021 CMH TULIP Award winner.

The TULIP Award was established June 2021 by CMH and Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation and is a recognition program for outstanding nursing assistants, medical assistants and patient care technicians who assist in direct patient care.

Huff earned her medical assistant certification 13 years ago and began working at CMH Osceola Medical Center in February 2021.

She was nominated for the award by her clinic manager for her willingness to help, going above and beyond in patient care and for being a patient advocate.

The nomination read, “She is kind and caring to each person, no matter who they are. I have seen her go out of her way to be a patient advocate when a prescription was sent in wrong. She has even offered her own money to a patient to help pay for a prescription. These are not just acts, but true caring for her community and its members. When I round on patients she is often cited as a person who has went above and beyond to make patients comfortable.”

When asked what it meant to receive this award Huff said it was a bit overwhelming and crazy because, “I’m just doing my job.”

Huff also wanted to acknowledge her coworkers and their teamwork saying, “It’s amazing. If you need anything they are the first to help you. You never feel like you’re alone,” said Woods. “I didn’t feel like a part of a family at previous jobs, but here at CMH I definitely feel like a part of a family.”
