Five Hills rec­og­nizes long ser­vice and re­tire­ments

Moose Jaw - - Front Page -

The Five Hills Health Re­gion re­cently hon­ored long-serv­ing staff mem­bers and re­tirees dur­ing the annual long ser­vice and re­tiree din­ner held in Moose Jaw.

Forty-four re­tirees and 93 in­di­vid­u­als who have worked with the re­gion con­tin­u­ously for in­cre­ments of 15, 20, 25, 30, and 35 years were rec­og­nized in­clud­ing staff from Assini­boia, Cen­tral Butte, Craik, Grav­el­bourg, Lafleche, Moose Jaw, and Rock­glen. Stu­art Cun­ning­ham, FHHR ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor of hu­man re­sources said it is im­por­tant to take th­ese types of op­por­tu­ni­ties to rec­og­nize em­ploy­ees for their ser­vice. “In an oth­er­wise very busy en­vi­ron­ment, th­ese award cer­e­monies are a great op­por­tu­nity for em­ploy­ees to come together and cel­e­brate the ded­i­ca­tion to ex­cel­lence that we see across the re­gion and to rec­og­nize the on­go­ing loy­alty of our ex­ist­ing work­force as well as the sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions of our re­cently re­tired work­force. We need to rec­og­nize this kind of loy­alty and com­mit­ment to qual­ity pa­tient care and ser­vice in what­ever way we can.” CEO Cheryl Craig said the im­por­tance of the em­ploy­ees’ con­tri­bu­tions can­not be ad­e­quately ex­pressed in words. “You have im­pacted so many pa­tients, clients, res­i­dents, and co-work­ers in ways that are not al­ways mea­sure­able.” Craig em­pha­sized the chal­lenge of work­ing in health­care. “You have cared for in­di­vid­u­als at a time when they were vul­ner­a­ble, from see­ing the birth of a new­born to car­ing for some­one at the end of their life jour­ney. It re­ally does re­quire many spe­cial gifts and at­tributes to re­spond to this call­ing of health­care.” Five Hill’s team of more than 1,800 staff and physi­cians of­fers a va­ri­ety of com­mu­nity and fa­cil­ity based pro­grams and ser­vices across the re­gion. This team pro­vides ser­vices to more than 53,000 res­i­dents in 40 ur­ban and ru­ral mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.
