Juniors serving pulled pork before the Dec. 1 basketball game
Big congratulations go out to Kalli Goewey for joining the ranks of the international DAISY award winners for delivery of extraordinary care, based on nominations submitted by patients and their loved ones. Kalli is a nurse in the Progressive Care Unit at Blessing Hospital in Quincy and was described as “one of the most genuine and compassionate nurses.” I can attest to Kalli’s care as she was one of the nurses who cared for my dad when he was in the hospital back in April. Couldn’t have asked for anyone better! Kalli is the daughter of Kent and Angie Goewey.
