Stephanie Beneitone approaches every day and every project. Her humility and respect are evident in all she does. She is a model for all in patient-centric focus, collaboration and implementation of ideas.
Stephanie is well known for going beyond expectations, showing compassion and empathy to all in her quest to serve the patient’s needs. Her adaptation into the role of Clinical Analyst working to implement and perfect the use of our EMR provides our users and their patients with a direct interpretation between Nurse and I.T. Specialist languages. She has made a difference in so many lives, ‘just doing her job’.
Stephanie Beneitone is an exemplary informatics nursing leader! She has been with Yavapai Regional Medical Center for 41 years and with the IT Works team for Cerner Corporation for two years. She attended Northern Arizona University, Yavapai College, University of Arizona and the University of Phoenix. Her career has included medical-surgical nursing, obstetrical nursing, emergency nursing and roles as Nursing Supervisor, Director of Medical Rehabilitation, Pre-Hospital Care Coordinator, Director of Emergency Services, Director of Nursing Education, and Clinical Systems Analyst. In her Nursing IT role, she is passionate about patient-care outcomes and dedicated to supporting clinicians by improving applications, problem-solving application issues, and strategizing for work-flow enhancement. Stephanie is retiring this summer; her knowledge, expertise, and AWESOME attitude will be greatly missed!
Stephanie has worked for YAVA_AZ / Cerner for over 42 years! She is always very patient and helps whoever comes her way. Stephanie is not just a nurse that has helped patience for years at YRMC. She was also my OB nurse when I was delivered in 1976. I really enjoy working with Stephanie and the way that she makes other team members feel when she is engaged in work / fun activities. If anyone deserves this award it is Stephanie. I should also mention that she is a great cook and not only can she call the shots, but she is willing and able to administer the shots too! Stephanie has climbed the ranks from the patient’s bedside to the IS department that supports the hospital. From the IS Analyst she became a team lead and she is such a great person. Please pick our Stephanie she truly is a daisy!! We all love her so very much, but only because she loves us as well! This will be the last opportunity to nominate Stephanie as she will be leaving the team this summer. She sure deserves this retirement!!
