SEARHC honors four employees in Juneau
The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium recently honored four employees from its Juneau campus as Employee of the Month for the months September through December. The four employees were nominated by their co-workers, and the selections were made by the SEARHC VISION Team (the medical center's leadership team). Each employee was honored during a staff meeting on Dec. 12, receiving a certificate from clinic administrator Brenda Sturm, a fruit tray to take back to their departments and a gift certificate to a local store.
