Sayre, Pa. – Guthrie Corning Hospital congratulates Emanuel “Mike” Glicos, RN, for being honored by his peers with the LaFollette-McInnis Service Award for an Intensive Care Unit staff member.
In 1987, the daughter and sons of Mrs. Elizabeth Sanborn LaFollette, a Guthrie Corning Hospital patient, created a service award in her memory. It was first awarded in 1988. Following their sister’s death, the sons added Elizabeth LaFollette McInnis’ name to the award.
This award honors Intensive Care Unit nurses "for their professional and personal nurture in appreciation for the care given Mrs. LaFollette." Mike Glicos, a registered nurse on the unit, was chosen for the award because of his exceptional empathy and compassion for patients and their families. He was cited for being a strong patient advocate with other departments and physicians and always being calm and reassuring during crisis situations.
The presentation of the award was made by members of the LaFollette family.
