Associate Recognition

Gold Star Award

Mary Maret

Mary is always willing to help where ever needed. She is always smiling and makes everyone feel welcomed. Mary takes time out of busy work day to lend a hand to Co-Associates and patients.

Mary noticed that a couple was having quite a time getting to acute care to visit a patient. They sat for a while admiring the beautiful scenery and after a moment of catching their breath the gentleman asked Mary if they could borrow a wheel chair. Mary being Mary responded "Wait here for one minute." She re-appeared with a wheel chair and wheeled the visiting lady to the room of the patient that they were here to visit. Her husband walking beside his wife as they journeyed down the hall. Happy conversation, smiles and laughter took the place of a difficult journey.

Mary showed, compassion, ownership, respect, integrity and most of all shared a great moment of trust with the visiting couple. People taking care of people, that's why we all are here! Mary you are a Gold Shining Star!

CONGRATULATIONS!
