BERMUDA RUN – Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Davie Medical Center has announced its most recent BEE Award Winner, Emory Crawford, a certified nursing assistant (CNA).

The award recognizes nursing support teammates and coincides with the DAISY Award, which honors nurses. The BEE was created because, just as in nature, bees are loyal and hardworking. The bee cannot exist without the daisy and the daisy cannot exist without the bee.

When asked why she became a CNA, Crawford said: “From a young age, I’ve always had an overwhelming interest in healthcare. It’s a field where I can truly transform lives, turning a person’s darkest moments into something a little bit brighter. Being able to lend a compassionate ear and deliver care to those in need is not just a duty, but a privilege I deeply cherish. It’s an honor to be able to work at the bedside of the patient to provide basic needs that are often overlooked, but truly impressionable to the patient and their family.”

“Emory is such an inspiration to work with, said Crawford’s manager, Amber Pitillo. “I am honored to witness how she genuinely touches the lives of the patients she interacts with as well as her fellow teammates. She always has a smile and makes such a lasting impact on everyone here at Davie Medical Center. Emory receiving the BEE Award is the representation of her selfless, compassionate, thoughtful care she provides to those she interacts with every day.”
