Tammy Stevenson is one of the first smiling faces you see as you walk through the doors of RiverView Clinic East Grand Forks. The patient access representative is also the smiling recipient of the April Employee of the Month honor!

Stevenson has been employed with RiverView Health for the past 17 years. The Thief River Falls native has a secretarial degree from Northland Community College. She and her husband, Ken, reside in rural East Grand Forks. They have two children: Hannah (Kevin), living in Linz, Austria; and Heath, Burnsville, MN. They also have one granddaughter and a grandson due in May.

“Thank you for this honor,’’ Stevenson said of her EOM designation. “I am so proud to work at the East Grand Forks Clinic. We have an excellent team. I hear from patients all the time how excellent the care is at RiverView Health. We may be the smaller healthcare in the area but we are giving exceptional care with exceptional outcomes!’’

Below are just some of the comments made in Stevenson’s honor:

I am so grateful to have Tammy on Team RiverView. She makes the work environment enjoyable for both RiverView employees and the patients utilizing the East Grand Forks Clinic. She always has a smile on her face and never complains. She treats everyone around her with respect and compassion. She is actively involved in planning holiday fun and potlucks. She goes above her job requirements to be the ring leader of EGF crew for fundraisers and team outings...She is the first person people see when they enter the clinic. Her patient interactions make them feel welcome immediately. -Lindsey Ebertowski, Rehab Services

Tammy is a great role model and a great coworker. Tammy always is going above and beyond to help others whenever needed. Tammy has a special way of making patients feel comfortable whether its while checking the patient in for the clinic visit or taking a few moments to visit with the patient in the waiting room. Tammy has to stay late several nights a week and work some Saturdays and some Sundays that were added and has never complained. She is always there to help with questions or willing to help or try and help. - Lynn Becker, Clinics

Tammy always is willing to take on new responsibilities to help out all other departments in the East Grand Forks location. She stays late to accommodate acupuncture and therapy clients whenever it is needed, no questions asked and always with a smile on her face. - Tracy Cameron, Rehab Services

Tammy is often the first one in the door and the last to leave. She often stays beyond the regular clinic hours of 8-4:30 for late afternoon therapy appointments, acupuncture on Tuesdays and now has been even coming in on some Saturdays and Sundays for specialty providers seeing patients. She never complains, she just comes in and happily does her job. Even with the extended hours on certain days, she never asks to leave early on other days. - Natalie Royal, Clinics
