CCMH Recognizes Support Services Professionals
November 07, 2018
In celebration of recognizing their employees, Carroll County Memorial Hospital holds departmental appreciation weeks throughout the year. Employees are categorized into five groups, and are recognized during one of these five special weeks.
The fourth group celebrated was CCMH Support Services Professionals. Those included were Nutrition Services, Environmental Services, Maintenance, Jefferson Park, Lifestyle Fitness Center and Childcare Center staff. Their recognition took place October 15-19 with daily awards and treats.
“The Rewards and Standards Team, composed of nine staff members from various departments and areas within CCMH, coordinates these appreciation weeks for CCMH staff,” said Kate Lyons, CCMH Community Outreach Coordinator and team leader. “The team plans the week consisting of staff gifts, education about highlighted departments, and trash pickup through Missouri Adopt-A-Highway program. Other components of the week include recognition awards for exemplary CCMH staff and charitable donations for local causes.”
During this trash pickup, high school students from the Hale R-1 school district joined CCMH staff, in appreciation for the hospital’s contributions to the school over the last year.
CCMH employees also held a Halloween Candy Drive in conjunction with the special week, where all staff were invited to participate. The collected items went toward CCMH’s annual Trunk or Treat event and Carroll County Area YMCA’s Trunk or Treat.
Throughout the week, decorative canvases were awarded to five staff members based on votes from fellow employees and CCMH’s values. Kristy Heussner received Integrity, Amy Jefferson won Compassion, Irma Straub was honored with Always, Jeremie Ahnefeld earned Respect, and Pam Goetting was awarded Excellence.
“I work closely with most members in this group and see their dedication to the organization firsthand,” Bill Bollinger, CCMH CIO, said. “It is especially important to Administration to take this time to recognize our support services staff for an excellent job at keeping operations running smoothly for all staff.”
The final group to be recognized is CCMH’s primary care providers, which takes place November 12-16.
