Julie Douty receives the July 2023 CMH TULIP Award

Julie Douty received the July 2023 CMH TULIP Award. She is a clerical technician at Citizens Memorial Hospital’s Dade County Family Medical Center.

She was nominated for the TULIP Award by a patient’s family member. In the nomination letter, the patient’s sister explains how the patient had a piece of food stuck in her throat and was having trouble breathing to the point of almost passing out.

“She [Julie] went above and beyond today to get the help my sister needed and fast,” the nomination states. “If she would have just set my sister in the lobby, things could have gone bad with how fast her oxygen level was going down. I’m so thankful for all the staff that was there today. They all helped save my sister’s life.”
