JASPER — Memorial Hospital has presented Lisa Evitts with the Gardener Award, a quarterly distinction honoring extraordinary team members and support staff who exceed their regular duties.

Evitts is a patient admissions assistant in the hospital’s emergency department. Her nominators noted her strong work ethic, saying “Lisa is a perfect example of what it means to ‘be for others.’”

The honor is linked to the Daisy Award, which recognizes exemplary nurses and was also awarded this week.
