MMH Employee Recognition Program 2014
Commitment That Goes Above; Care That Goes Beyond!
Massena Memorial Hospital’s 20th Annual Employee Recognition Program was held to honor employees who achieved career milestones in 2014. The Employee Recognition program’s theme this year was “Commitment that goes above and Care that goes beyond.”
Charles F. Fahd, II, FACHE, Chief Executive Officer, addressed the employees with great respect in regards to the tremendous years of dedication each employee has given to Massena Memorial Hospital. He said, “I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and “thank you” for being part of Massena Memorial Hospital’s Twentieth Annual Employee Recognition program. Tonight will mark yet another milestone in the healthcare careers of 65 of our colleagues as we recognize and celebrate over 900 years of commitment, dedication and service excellence to our hospital, patients and community.”
“During this day and age of high technology, constant mobility and all the new types of jobs and career opportunities, that are now available out there, it’s unusual to find individuals, who are willing to stay in one place, with one employer for literally decades. For two of our honorees this year, they have over 3 ½ decades and still counting.
“It is very special people to work in healthcare and more specifically the acute care hospital setting and when we look at the list names of those being recognized, 22 of the 65 are celebrating 20 years or more years of dedicated service for our hospital community.”
The Massena Memorial Hospital Auxiliary hosted the evening event by providing dinner to all the employees being recognized.
