A resident of Mercer County, Beams has been caring for patients for over nine years. She began her career at EMJBHH as an Emergency Department Tech, then obtained a Licensed Practical Nursing degree and advanced yet again to a Bachelor’s prepared Registered Nurse.

She was nominated for the award by a patient that said, “Rebecca is the best nurse I have ever had. She helped me when I had an accident and made me feel so much better and at ease. She went above the call of duty by helping to load me in my truck.”
