CCMH Celebrates Support Services Professionals

October 11, 2019

Nicole Starkebaum was named the Excellence Award Winner by her peers during Support Services Week at CCMH.

CARROLLTON, Mo. – In honor 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 Childcare Center, Environmental Services, Jefferson Park, Maintenance, Nutrition Services and Wellness Center staff. Their recognition took place September 23-27 with daily awards and treats.

“The Rewards and Recognition Team, composed of five 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 advisor. “The team plans the week consisting of staff gifts, refreshments and a spirit week. Other components of the week include recognition awards for exemplary CCMH staff and charitable donations for local causes.”

The local cause CCMH employees chose was a School Nurse Supplies Drive, which assisted school nurse programs at Bosworth, Carrollton, Hale, Norborne, Tina-Avalon and Santa Fe schools. Needed items were collected throughout the week and divided amongst the schools.

Throughout the week, decorative canvases were awarded to five staff members based on votes from fellow employees and CCMH’s values. Irma Straub received Integrity, Amy Jefferson won Compassion, Mona Emrich was honored with Always, Dia Sides earned Respect, and Nicole Starkebaum was awarded Excellence. 

“We are always excited about recognizing the great work of our employees, and when Badge Week rolls around, it is extra special,” said Michael Schubach, CCMH Chief People Officer. “Our Support Services staff members are in the spotlight during Yellow Badge Week. Each of them deliver on our values everyday by ensuring our patients, guests and staff members of CCMH receive a high-level of care and service, and we value their contribution to CCMH.”

The final group to be recognized is CCMH’s primary care providers, which takes place November 11-15.
