Celia Morales Recieves Edward Hospital WOW Employee Recognition Award
CELIA MORELOS, BSN
Patient WOW Award Nomination:
We met with Celia to help my father with his diabetes. At 89, he was placed on insulin with virtually no helpful instruction. Celia has been patient, kind and knowledgeable. She graciously gave us her cell phone to call with any questions he/we may have. She continues to go above and beyond in helping us understand the complicated process of balancing life and long-acting and rapid-acting insulin. She was a very valued member of his process! You are lucky to have her on staff! And we feel blessed to have her help us!
