Alton Memorial Hospital is filled with excellent employees, and hospital leadership is always eager to recognize their skill and commitment.
That was done in grand style March 7 at the annual Employee Banquet, which incorporated a theme from the movie “Grease.” The banquet was held at the Lewis and Clark Community College Commons.
Employees celebrating milestone anniversaries during 2015 were recognized, up to a 40-year service award for Joyce Akers (Surgery) and a 45-year service award for Barbara Bruce of Surgery.
Special awards went to Chaplain Bruce Baumberger, who was voted the 2014 AMH Employee of the Year; and Mary Bayer of Twin Rivers MRI/Cancer Care Center, who earned the 2014 Leadership Award.
The Bed Committee earned the Virginia Ilch Excellence in Service Award. Team members include Amy Schuler, Kari Fritz, Diane Strebel, Ronnie Greenwood, Randy Staton, Angie Henry and Jennifer Martin. The late Libby Yaw is included as a memorial member of the committee.
