Submitted by Gordon Hospital

CALHOUN — Chrystal Chattam Moore has been awarded Gordon Hospital’s prestigious Extra Mile Award.

This special award was created by members of the hospital’s Employee Engagement Committee to recognize employees who go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. It is awarded monthly to deserving employees selected by the hospital’s directors.

 “Chrystal is an outstanding nurse, who I am proud to have on this team,” says Kari da Costa, director of the hospital’s Medical/Surgical Unit. “She daily portrays the mission of this facility and incorporates the practice of going the extra mile in everything she does.”

 Moore, RN, has been employed by Gordon Hospital for one year.  She is a 1995 graduate of Calhoun High School and earned a degree in respiratory therapy from Southwestern Georgia Technical College in 2001. She earned her nursing degree in 2011 from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

“I truly appreciate this award,” Moore says. “It is an honor to come back home and be chosen for the Extra Mile Award by leadership.”

Moore resides in Gordon County with her husband, Aaron, and daughters, Malya, 4, and Brooklyn, 1. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family.
