About Bev Coleman

Bev Coleman provided compassionate care to her patients at King's Daughters for more than 32 years. In February 2015, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, passing away in April that year. Her colleagues, physicians and team members remember Coleman for her positive attitude, commitment to quality and willingness to go the extra mile to meet the needs of her patients and fellow team members. She always wore a smile, no matter how stressful or difficult the day had been. Coleman practiced her profession with grace and was noted for her ability to bring calmness and peace to any situation.

Coleman always strove to be the best possible version of herself, earning certification in post-anesthesia care and obtaining her bachelor of science degree in nursing over her long career. She was essential to the planning and opening of the pre- and post-op surgical areas at King's Daughters Medical Center Ohio.

The 2018 winner will be announced Friday, May 11.
