GEFCC Recognizes Employees for Years of Service and Dedication

During any other year, Greater Elgin Family Care Center would have held its annual Winter Event this past January.  However, just like 2020, this year continues to be different from past years Due to the ongoing pandemic, plans had to change, and GEFCC was unable to gather at its Winter Event as we have done so for the past 15 years.  Nevertheless, during a recent organization-wide update, 29 GEFCC employees were celebrated and recognized for their ongoing commitmentdedication and years of service to the organization and its patients and clients. 

Greater Elgin Family Care Center’s Service Awards symbolize the commitment that our employees have to our mission.  Some of the employees recognized below have been a part of the organization since it consisted of just a single Health Center in Elgin, and many have experienced many career milestones throughout their time at GEFCC.   

The successful growth of Greater Elgin Family Care Center, and the organization’s repeated, nationally-recognized outcomes, are a direct result of the contributions of each and every one of our most-valued employees.  We especially congratulate and recognize the employees listed below as their abilities and contributions have just been absolutely essential to GEFCC’s continued success.   

Please help us congratulate and thank our employees for their service!
