Winners for the Quarter were Nancy Corsentino of Colorado State Veteran Nursing Home, Chris Pedraza of the hospital and Linda Maez from shared service departments. Nomination boxes are placed throughout the facility so that employees could suggest a co-worker who exemplifies the “Improve The Lives We Touch” Mission Statement and the “ICARE” guiding principles (Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect & Excellence). A team of employees make the final selection. Besides the honor of the title, other recognition is provided.
