Christal Lane – 2024 LeConte Silver Lamp Award Recipient

Christal found her home at LeConte Medical Center 10 years ago when she first started working in the emergency room as a scribe.

Since being able to come home, Christal has made it a point to become invested in the culture of LeConte.

From participating in the Transformation program and Jingle Run for Hope to leading team morale events in the lab, Christal strives to be a light to all around her. In addition, she has recently started serving on the culture committee at LeConte to see how the facility can continue to improve the culture. Christal goes above and beyond, not only for herself but also for our team and patients. She is committed to patient safety and even received a Speak Up! Award for her dedication and watchful eye.
