Balke Named Taylorville Memorial’s July Colleague of the Month


Balke embodies Memorial Health values of safety and integrity by giving special attention to the details involved in her patient care, said Gina Watson, Balke’s co-worker, who nominated her for recognition. For example, Balke makes sure the patient’s call light is within the patient’s reach, said Watson.

“Deborah is always willing to assist her colleagues, even those outside of her own department,” she said.

Balke, of Kincaid, has worked at Taylorville Memorial Hospital since 2009.

Outside of work, she enjoys shopping for antiques and spending time with her family, which includes four children, seven grandchildren and her husband of 44 years.
