In an article by Grey Foley of the Idaho Mountain Express:

The St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation has awarded nurse Amber Weber with the 2021 Carl A. Gray Memorial Award for nursing excellence.

The foundation’s board of directors issued the award with the Harvey Gray family, after hospital staff voted to honor Weber for her excellence in the nursing practice. Each year, the entire staff of the hospital nominates nurses for the award, and the nursing staff then votes on the colleague whom they believe is most deserving of recognition.

Weber, who has several nursing credentials, “was overwhelmingly the staff’s choice to receive the excellence award,” St. Luke’s stated. Weber is a clinical educator at St. Luke’s Wood River and has led the organization’s vaccination effort for employees and the community.

“Amber goes above and beyond her job, and she does it remarkably well,” one colleague stated. “She is very organized and always on top of what needs to be done despite having millions of irons in the fire.”

Another stated: “Amber has been a beacon of positive energy this past year. She has managed to inspire us, educate us, and organize a whirlwind of activities, not the least being an incredible effort in vaccinating our community. Amazing is not a big enough word!”
