GEFCC Celebrates First Annual Spirit Day!

On June 10th, 2018 Greater Elgin Family Care Center celebrated the 1st Annual Spirit Day, a day to acknowledge and express appreciation to all the GEFCC employees for their commitment and dedication to our mission.

This year’s Spirit Day was hosted at Randall Oaks Park and although it was a cloudy day, the rain held off during our picnic hours and we were able to enjoy a nice park outing.  GEFCC employees and their families enjoyed tasty food and fun activities including face painting, balloon animal making and an incredibly convincing magic show.

Also, GEFCC’s annual S.P.I.R.I.T. of Excellence Award winners were announced during Spirit Day. S.P.I.R.I.T. of Excellence is our employee recognition program through which GEFCC patients and staff  nominate GEFCC employees who have made a positive difference and who have demonstrated one or more of GEFCC’s organizational values.  Employees nominated by their peers and patients are recognized monthly.  Employees who receive multiple nominations in a quarter are recognized as Quarterly Top Performers.  The S.P.I.R.I.T. of Excellence Award winners are selected from the Quarterly Top Performers.

We are excited to announce the 2017-2018 S.P.I.R.I.T. of Excellence Award Winners:

  • Patient Liaison – Perla Jacobo, Receptionist; Center for Family Health
  • Care Partner – Fabiola Martinez, Medical Assistant; Seneca Health Center
  • Practitioner – Stephanie Williams, Family Nurse Practitioner; Summit Health Center
  • Organizational Support – Vanessa Velasco, Family Case Management Program Coordinator; Seneca Health Center

Congratulations to our S.P.I.R.I.T. of Excellence Award Winners and thank you to the entire GEFCC Team for their hard work and dedication to excellence in health care!
