Simcoe, ON – Norfolk General Hospital (NGH) and The Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home (NHNH) have announced two exemplary employees who have made significant contributions to the Hospital and Nursing Home. Each year, nominations are put forth by fellow colleagues.
The 2011, Dr. George Marshall Award recipient is Sherri Schira-Ladosz, Director of Volunteers and Clergy at NGH. Sherri is acknowledged as being a professional, courteous and caring employee. As the Director of Volunteers, Sherri oversees an operation comprised of 450 active Hospital Volunteers and 200 Community and Alumni Volunteers. She knows everyone by name and ensures that every Volunteer feels that they are making a valuable contribution to our organization.
Sherri exemplifies collegiality, community involvement and a genuine caring nature to anyone who comes into contact with her. She is actively involved with the Network of Volunteer Administrators (NOVA) Regional Chapter and the Provincial Association. Throughout Sherri’s personal and professional life, her endeavours truly exemplify the merits of the Dr. George Marshall Award, along with the mission and values of our hospital.
The Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home also used the Annual Staff Open House held December 21, 2011 as the platform to announce Sherri Myke as the 2011 NHNH Employee of the Year. Sherri began her career at NGH in 1988. After 19 years at the hospital working as a Foodservice aide, part time OR porter and temporary full time Cook, she moved to the Housekeeping Department and was assigned to The Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home.
Sherri is an employee who shows a lot of initiative and goes out of her way to help others; she shows interests and enthusiasm toward her work, has a great sense of humour and can be relied on for a smile and bubbly laugh. She is a true team player who not only cares for the residents of NHNH but is seen to go above and beyond the expectations of her job.
Norfolk General Hospital and The Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home are very privileged to have both of these employees as a part of our health care and resident care team. Their hard work, dedication and commitment are truly applauded. In addition to a plaque presentation, award recipients were presented with a cash honorarium from John Race, in his appreciation of the contributions of the dedicated health care staff. Congratulations to both Sherri and Sherri on this special achievement.
