McCready Health Recognizes Long-time Employees
McCready Health recognized employees celebrating five years of service to 45 years of service at its annual Longevity Awards program last week.With 45 years of service now under her belt, Jill Sterling, LPN, began working for McCready in 1972 as a nursing assistant, and received her LPN license in 1975. Over the years, she worked as a hospital charge nurse, in the ER and in OB. In 1997, she joined the Outpatient Services Department to work as Dr. Vijay’s nurse, where she found her home and works to this day, well-known for her ever-ready smile and offers to help anyone in any way she can.
Susan Evans and Lana McCready, LPN, are both celebrating 20 years of service to McCready. Human Resources Specialist Susan Evans joined McCready part-time in 1997 as a communications operator, and just a few months later took a full-time position as receptionist for the Radiology Department. Several months after that, she accepted a job as Unit Coordinator for the nursing home, where she worked for four years until the position opened in the Human Resources Department. Lana McCready began her career with McCready in 1988 as a PRN (as-needed basis) CNA before becoming a full-time employee in 1997, when she also received her LPN license. Lana truly loves working the night shift, and is counted upon every year as the driving force behind McCready Health’s award-winning Christmas Parade floats.
Manika Borden, GNA (Nursing Home); Lillie Coleman (Environmental Services); Marta Melendez (Environmental Services); and Myrna Whittington (Dietary) are all celebrating 15 years of service to McCready.
Susan Bradshaw, RN (Nursing Home); Charles Marsh (Radiology); and Lisa Tyler (Health Information Management) are celebrating 10 years of service.
