Amy Knox November Employee of the Month at ALMH
November 17, 2012 – LINCOLN – Amy Knox has been named the November Employee of the Month at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln. Knox works as a Physical Therapist in the Rehabilitation Services Department.
After working at ALMH only 7 months, Knox has already made an impact by creating great patient experiences. A patient nominated her for the award.
“Amy was pleasant and professional during my therapy treatments. She explained my causes of pain and the exercises to help relieve the pain very well. Amy was a great motivator, encouraging me every step of the way even when we found more pockets of pain to deal with as my sessions continued. I have been recommending ALMH therapy to others. It is great,” said the patient in the nomination.
Knox was born and raised in Rushville, Illinois and currently lives in Athens. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Illinois College and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Washington University in St. Louis. As a Physical Therapist, Knox evaluates patients to diagnose their movement impairments and works with the Physical Therapy Assistants to develop a course of treatment.
“Physical Therapy is a challenging but rewarding career. Working with patients who have a variety of diagnoses means no two days are ever the same. You never get bored,” said Knox.
Knox said that she enjoys working at ALMH because of her great co-workers.
“I learn something new from them every week.”
