Olympic Medical Center’s Patricia Green has received the Home Care Association of Washington’s (HCAW) 2009 “Support Staff of the Year” award – the second year in a row a Home Health employee has received an award from HCAW. HCAW announced the award at its spring conference on April 23, 2009.
Green has been an administrative assistant with Olympic Medical Home Health since January 2007, and is one of the many employees at Olympic Medical Center who work hard every day to create a healing environment for patients and establish a pleasant place to work.
“Patti is a vital and essential asset to the Home Health staff and business,” says Fran Sisson, administrator of Olympic Medical Home Health. “Her eagerness to take on new projects, along with her ability to anticipate our needs and keep the entire leadership team on task, on time and on target, are key reasons why she deserves this award.”
The HCAW Support Staff Award is given to a person who works in medical records, customer service, as an assistant or a receptionist. In order to earn the award, an employee must demonstrate her or his ability to positively impact the organization, be hard working and make a difference in the lives of their fellow employees. The award recipient must also work for one of the 42 organizations that are part of the HCAW membership.
