Medical Center Moment - March 2018
March was a month of celebration at the medical center as we celebrated 22 of our employees with milestone anniversaries in 2017 and honored our 2017 Employee Exemplifying Excellence award winner, Joanna Sorber, who works at the outpatient registration desk.
The employee recognition event reminds all of us how important our role is at the medical center. Every employee is vital to our mission, vision and values. It is an honor to be a part of such a great team with some real longevity in dedication and hard work. We honored our employees who, in 2017, celebrated 40, 35, 25, 20, 15, 10 and 5 years of service. These years of experience and the dedication they represent are available to our patients and their families every day.
One of our nurses, Jessica Brown, was recently named one of Iowa’s 100 Great Nurses for 2018. Jessica works in our chemotherapy services area. She is well deserving of this honor, and will be recognized on May 6 in Des Moines.
Our DAISY award event is coming up on May 9, and there is still time to nominate the nurse, or nurses, who cared for you or your loved one. Nomination forms are available on our website or throughout the medical center.
Our employees are our greatest asset and it is always a pleasure to see them being recognized for the work they do. Thank you for supporting them and the medical center.
Always Here, Always Caring
Carl Behne, CEO
