The "High 5 Star" award was put into place to recognize those employees who go above and beyond their regular duties to provide exceptional service to our patients, families or fellow employees. These awards are special because they are most often recommended by fellow workers who observe their co-workers extra efforts. Four awards were recently presented to deserving team members.
