Waller Named May Colleague of the Month for Decatur Memorial Hospital


Alisha Waller, a case manager at Decatur Memorial Hospital, is the nonprofit hospital’s Colleague of the Month for May.

Waller was commended for the way she managed a patient’s care in two extended stays at DMH. She took time to explain the situation to the patient’s family, gave them things to consider from a long-term care perspective and shared helpful resources.

“She talked us through hard things to consider for the future,” the nominator wrote. “She worked with insurance, which was not easy, to find a placement in a location that met our family’s needs and helped reduce our stress as caregivers. Her kindness, humor and thoughtfulness were very much appreciated by our family.”

Waller has worked for Decatur Memorial Hospital since 2008.
