Bayhealth congratulated Kim Wilt, registered nurse, on being named the most recent cardiovascular surgical intensive care unit Employee of the Quarter.

Wilt received the award based on nominations from coworkers on her unit.

The CVSICU Employee of the Quarter is a peer award that recognizes nurses for going above and beyond.

Wilt, a night shift nurse, has been a CVISCU nurse for more than two years; she’s been a nurse for more than six years total. Her kindergarten dream to become a brain surgeon translated to becoming a nurse. Wilt completed her nursing assistant certification while in high school.

“I like working in CVSICU because we usually see our patients right away after surgery and they’re really sick. As the days go on, we see them get better and walk out of here much better than when they came in and it’s nice to see that,” said Wilt.
