CHI Saint Joseph Health

Congratulations to the following employees for their recent awards, honors and recognitions! Thanks for expanding your knowledge, honing your expertise, and providing safe, quality care and exceptional service.

Lori Abell, Flaget Memorial Hospital
Congratulations to Lori Abell, executive assistant, for being a recipient of the ROSE Award (1st quarter/2019). A colleague said, “You have a wonderful gem in Lori Abell. All my interactions with her are positive beyond belief. I lost my badge and when I mentioned I hated losing my pins (especially my 5-year service pin), she not only graciously had my badge ready when I came to pick it up, but she gave me a new CHI pin and 5-year pin along with all my safety coach badge buddies! It made my heart so happy! She takes such great care of the employees so we can take care of the patients!”

Barbara Leake, RN, Flaget Memorial Hospital

Congratulations to Barbara Leake, a registered nurse in Outpatient Treatment, for being named a recipient of the DAISY Award (1st quarter/2019). She was nominated by her colleagues who praised her care. They said, “Barbara has worked at Flaget for a long time and has had many roles here. She has always gone out of her way to help patients and staff. She even comes in on vacation or her day off to help. She has reverence, integrity, compassion and excellence. She is a role model to all of us.”
