American Sentinel University and Colorado Hospital Association Name Delta County Memorial Hospital Nurse Colorado Health Care Star

Award Recognizes Janel Webb at Delta County Memorial Hospital as a Health Care Professional Making a Difference

AURORA, Colo. – August 17, 2017 – American Sentinel University and the Colorado Hospital Association (CHA) named Janel Webb, RN, BSN, ICU/Clinical Education, ICU Manager at Delta County Memorial Hospital as a Colorado Health Care Stars Award winner. This award recognizes Webb as an exceptional health care professional.

Colorado Health Care Stars is a statewide health care professional award recognition program sponsored by American Sentinel University and CHA. The program was launched in February 2015 to acknowledge industry professionals in Colorado who exceed expectations in the delivery of health care.

Webb’s supervisor, Jody Roeber, Chief Clinical Officer at Delta County Memorial Hospital says Webb has helped Delta Hospital develop a comprehensive clinical education program in addition to her duties as ICU manager.

Roeber says Webb is a remarkable nurse.

“Janel’s accomplishments at Delta Hospital are far reaching in just the past year,” says Roeber. “She offers monthly mock codes and rotates them through different departments throughout the hospital. If a department manager feels their staff needs additional training, they refer to the mock code.”

Roeber says Webb has been instrumental in the development of staff to offer the hospital’s Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Basic Life Support courses and the hospital no longer needs to outsource those services.

Webb is the lead instructor for these classes, and the hospital receives rave reviews about how they cater to the hospital’s needs.

“Janel is an excellent role model for her staff, promotes safety and excellence in care and demonstrates excellent technical skills and compliments that with her compassion and kindness of manner,” says Roeber. “She’s a true leader in our hospital, and we are honored to name her our health care star.”

“Janel Webb is an inspiration to nursing. Her tireless energy, dedication to her peers, compassion and kindness and ability to lead make her an outstanding role model,” says Chris Wolfe, Vice President of Partner Relations and Program Strategy at American Sentinel University. “It’s an honor to name Janel a Colorado Health Care Star and recognize her valuable leadership at Delta County Memorial Hospital.”
