Christin PritchardChristin Pritchard was named Great River Medical Center Employee of the Month for her leadership during the health system and community rollouts of the COVID-19 vaccine. She is the director of Nursing Operations.

Pritchard’s nomination:

“Although implementing the vaccine clinics for employees and the public certainly has been a group effort, Christin was the leader of the process. She will probably say she was “just doing her job.” That may be the case, but Christin really went above and beyond, especially for the public clinics.

“Many people don’t realize the coordination and logistics required to make a vaccination clinic happen. Christin spent countless hours of her own time – often until 9 or 10 p.m. the night before a clinic began at 7 a.m. – making sure lists were organized, volunteers were coordinated, supplies were ready and everything was going to run smoothly.

"On the news, we hear about clinics that have had long lines, ridiculous wait times, people camping in their cars and even wearing disguises to try to get a vaccination. Not in Des Moines County, Iowa. Our people have been in and out with smiles on their faces because of the efforts of Christin’s leadership and organization of a team effort. I admire her for this work, and I know it’s a project she will never forget working on.”
