Southwest Health System’s April Employee of the Month is Amber Thurman, Surgery. Thanks for all you do, Amber!Amber Thurman of our Surgery department of Southwest Memorial Hospital is recognized as Southwest Health System’s April 2020 employee of the month!

Amber has been employed with SHS for 2 years. Amber began working for SHS as a CNA shortly after graduating high school. She then left the area for a couple years to continue her education. Amber stated, “It was a no brainer that SHS is where I wanted to start my nursing career. I knew many of the nurses that would be helping me build my skills and knew this would be a warm, welcoming place to be.”

Amber enjoys the sense of community that SHS offers. “It’s nice to walk down the hallway and know almost every person you pass and be able to ask them how their day is going. It’s great to be a part of such a close knit group of people that work so well together. I love all my coworkers in the Surgical Services department. I love how well we can all work as a team to accomplish the best outcomes for our patients, while also having fun and thoroughly enjoying each other’s company, since we sometimes spend more time together than with our families.”

In Amber’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and family working out on their family’s ranch in Mancos. She also enjoys going to the mountains and taking in all the beauty Southwest Colorado has to offer. With summer coming, you will probably find her working in her garden, trying to improve her green thumb.
