Department of the Month
Alliance Community Hospital’s Department of the Month for December 2007 is Environmental Services.
Environmental Services is comprised of 49 hardworking Colleagues, each of whom is, according to departmental directors Robert Madison and Linn Eddy, "always willing to help; to go the extra mile."
Environmental Services encompasses many hospital responsibilities here at ACH.
Madison and Eddy explained that ES ensures not only that the hospital is clean and presentable at all times, but that it is also safe and functional.
Some of the many duties handled by the Environmental Services department include: housekeeping, trash removal, hazardous spill cleanup, pest control, room setup and maintenance and many cleaning and beautification projects, to name a few.
Madison and Eddy agree that what sets the ES staff members apart is their willingness to pitch in and lend a hand whenever and wherever it may be required.
"These Colleagues are passionate about what they do and that enthusiasm resonates throughout the hospital," they said.
Indeed, ES staff members are always easily identifiable by their warm smiles and caring manners – each team member makes it his or her mission to treat patients, visitors and fellow Colleagues as though they were family members.
"This team gives 110% in everything that they do," said Madison and Eddy.
The entire staff of ACH appreciates the commitment, diligence and enthusiasm demonstrated by each member of the Environmental Services team. Colleagues such as those in the Environmental Services department help to provide a wonderful work environment here at Alliance Community Hospital.
Be sure to congratulate any and all Environmental Services Colleagues you see within the next few weeks, for their tremendous accomplishment of being named ACH’s Department of the Month for December. Don’t forget to thank them for keeping the hospital clean, safe and beautiful!
