Salem Township Hospital Honors Employees ThursdaySalem Township Hospital took time Thursday morning to honor some of its most dedicated employees. The ceremony honored 50 employees mentioned on Patient Satisfaction Surveys. Hospital President Stephanie Hilton-Siebert says these employees help make hospital visits easier for the patients.
"These are employees that the patient took the time to write their name down on the survey, saying that their care was excellent, provided by that particular individual. We recognize them throughout the year, but we also feel that it's important at the end of the year to go ahead and recognize them collectively", said Hilton-Siebert.
Hilton-Siebert noted that the honored employees spanned across the entire hospital, from direct care to nutritional services and housekeeping. The hospital also honored 26 other employees Thursday for years of service to the hospital. Employees were honored in five year increments for a total of 325 years of service to the hospital.
Forty of those years came from Charles Randolph. Randolph started work on December 26th, 1972. "I like the place and I really like the people here. They're what makes the hospital", said Randolph. Randolph began as a purchasing agent and later moved to the IT department. He is now the Director of Materials Management.
