Employees at St. Joseph's Candler nominated 39 people for the McAuley Award this year.
Beverly Youmans, the manager of the Infusion Center, was recognized for living the mission and values of St. Joseph's Candler and honoring the memory of Catherine McAuley.
The winner exemplifies employees who work to provide quality care and compassion to the patients and their families.
"I actually think I embody the spirit of all of the employees at this hospital, my staff who takes care of patients everyday and tries to do it with a good heart and caring spirit and empathy," said Youmans. "I think we are all just a vessel for doing that."
Youmans received a monetary gift, a free year parking pass, a cafeteria pass and a one hour massage.
