Arlene Hughes RT (R) - Imaging Services

Arlene Hughes R.T. (R) has been named the Valley County Health System (VCHS) Employee of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of the 2015-2016 fiscal year. The VCHS Employee of the Quarter is awarded to a nominated employee who exemplifies the values of VCHS – integrity, compassion, ownership, respect and trust.

VCHS CEO Nancy Glaubke presented the award to Hughes at a July 15th ceremony at VCHS with coworkers, family and friends in attendance.

“Arlene treats her patients with the utmost respect along with coworkers and employees from other departments,” the nomination, in part, read. “Arlene is overflowing with compassion. She will do anything for her patients. Come early, stay late, come on her day off, she goes above and beyond for her patients here and for her hospice patients as well.”

Hughes joins previous VCHS Employee of the Quarter award recipients Paula Sherburne, a VCHS insurance biller, Lindsey Oldaker, PT, and Debbie Graves, LPN, for consideration for the VCHS Employee of the Year award.

VCHS CEO Nancy Glaubke presented Graves with the award on April 22.

“Debbie is always kind, soft spoken and sincere in all she does, […] and she always follows through to make sure each patient she works with is taken care of,” the nomination, in part, read. “Debbie often shows praise for the good others bring to the workplace, while she is also not afraid to help teach when things are not done the best they can be.”

Employee of the Quarter (2nd Quarter)
Lindsey Oldaker, PT, DPT - Rehabilitation Services 

Lindsey Oldaker, PT, DPT, was recently named the Valley County Health System (VCHS) Employee of the Quarter for the second quarter of the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Oldaker, who during the past year completed specialized training and expanded women’s health rehabilitation services at VHCS, was nominated by her coworkers for exemplifying the VCHS values of integrity, compassion, ownership, respect and trust. 

"Lindsey is always willing to adjust her schedule to help others out. She is always willing to come in early, stay late, or even sees a patient over the lunch hour to accommodate the patient's needs and schedule," the nomination, in part, read.

The nomination explained that Oldaker’s first women’s health patient last year was nervous and unsure of what to expect when arriving for her first appointment; however, “Lindsey took the time to explain everything to the patient and reassure the patient that they were not alone. When that patient left that day, they came out of the room with a smile on their face and kindly thanked Lindsey for giving them their life back. Lindsey is changing people’s lives and giving them hope!”

Two other Employee of the Quarter recipients will join Oldaker and Paula Sherburne, a VCHS insurance biller and first quarter recipient, at the end of the fiscal year for consideration for the Employee of the Year award.

Sherburne, an insurance biller in the VCHS Patient Financial Services Department, was nominated by her coworkers for exemplifying the VCHS values of integrity, compassion, ownership, respect and trust. 

"Paula has the patience of a saint when it comes to insurance follow up. She is persistent with working on her claims until she gets an answer and the issue is resolved ... [and] with many tasks thrown her way, Paula takes on the challenges without complaining," the nomination, in part, read.

Aside from praising her dedication to her job, the nomination noted Sherburne's friendly and positive demeanor. 

"Paula is the first to applaud and praise coworkers on all accomplishments, big or small. She truly cares about others and takes the time to listen to them," her nomination said. "Paula is the friendly smile and warm 'hello' to patients, visitors and employees that she meets in the hallway, and who can overlook her amazing candy dish that she personally supplies?!"

Three other Employee of the Quarter recipients will join Sherburne at the end of the fiscal year for consideration for the Employee of the Year award.

Gold Star Award

Cheryl Sinkler - Laundry/Housekeeping

Cheryl Sinkler has worked for VCHS for almost 21 years. During this time, she has been part of our laundry department, as well as helped with housekeeping at our Burwell Clinic. You know that the job will be done on time, and done right, when Cheryl is working. She takes pride in what she does and does so in a caring and professional manner. Cheryl is one of those people you meet in the hall and know she will say hello to you by name.

Cheryl exceeds expectations as she keeps laundry services going for both the hospital and Valley View Living Center, as well as ensures the Burwell Clinic is cleaned with the utmost care.

Starting her laundry shift at 5:00 a.m., Cheryl regularly returns to clean the Burwell Clinic at 6:00 p.m. and on Saturdays.

We sometimes take for granted the little things, such as clean linens, towels, etc.  Hospital patients, however, appreciate clean bedding, towels, etc., and knowing Cheryl is on the job, means that this small comfort of home is always taken care of in the most professional manner.

Cheryl is well respected by her fellow employees and is a role model in her hard working and positive attitude and the way she carries out her work at all times.

DEDICATED, PROFESSIONAL, KIND, and HARD WORKING are just a few words to describe what a special lady Cheryl is and how deserving she is of being recognized as a Gold Star!

Congratulations, Cheryl! You are a Gold Star!
