Fourth Annual Accolade Highlights Partners for Their Care of Patients, Dedication to Teamwork and Ability to Leverage Telemedicine to Truly Make a Difference
Lexie Caraway, Sarah Bush Lincoln Respiratory Therapy manager was selected as a recipient of the 2019 I SEE YOU CARE Award presented by Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services.
Now in its fourth year, the recognition highlights outstanding collaboration between on-premise care staff and Advanced ICU Care’s intensivist-led remote critical care team – to the end of providing the gold standard of care to the hospital’s most critically-ill patient population. Caraway was selected among nominees from almost 90 Advanced ICU Care partner hospitals and their employees across the United States.
“Working in collaboration with Advanced ICU Care has afforded Sarah Bush Lincoln the ability to elevate the bedside team’s capability to provide our most critically ill patients with constant, round-the-clock support,” VP Medical Affairs Jim Hildebrandt, DO, said. “We are honored that Lexie was recognized with this year’s I SEE YOU CARE award in recognition of her outstanding performance contribution to truly collaborative care.”
Caraway was recognized in a ceremony on May 23 and was also honored with a donation in its name to the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation. Established in 2016, the I SEE YOU CARE Award honors Advanced ICU Care tele-ICU partners for their efforts in caring for patients, collaborating across geography and leveraging telehealth to make a profound difference with respect to quality, safety and access within their hospital for the surrounding community. This year, Advanced ICU Care expanded the number of award recognitions to now include executive, respiratory therapist and IT/technology recognition.
“At Advanced ICU Care, successful care team collaboration with our partner hospitals serves as the cornerstone of our mutual successes,” Lou Silverman, Chairman and CEO of Advanced ICU Care, said. “In bestowing Lexie Caraway with this year’s I SEE YOU CARE award, we are recognizing a partner and team member who truly emphasizes a commitment to patient-centered care and outcomes-based initiatives to benefit the patients, families, care teams and hospitals that we serve together.”
In all, the 2019 I SEE YOU CARE Awards honored 11 recipients for their individual, team and facility-wide dedication to delivering, in collaboration with Advanced ICU Care, the best of critical care to the patients they serve.
