BMH Names George Lagro, RN 2012 Employee of the Year

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital named George Lagro, RN its 2012 Employee of the Year during an employee recognition dinner held May 5 at the Eagles Club in Brattleboro.

During most of his 22 years with BMH, Lagro has primarily worked evenings and has been a night duty nurse since 2001. A native of Randolph, Vermont, Lagro was originally hired as a nurse assistant in 1989 and obtained his LPN credential from the Thompson School during that time. He left BMH in 1992, then returned a year later and went on to get his RN degree from Vermont Technical College in 1994.

Lagro received multiple nominations from his colleagues for the honor. Danielle Piper wrote of his commitment to patients: “George humbly fulfills his duties to his patients with a generous spirit. The patient comes first and he is quick to respond to his patients’ call lights each time they ring.”

Angela Dubray, who works the same shift as Lagro, wrote: “George is a great team player and co-worker. When asked for help with something he never hesitates. Everyone wants to work with George.”
