Iroquois Memorial Hospital would not be successful without the support of our incredible staff. Some members stand out as Superstars!
Each week, we will be featuring a new Superstar staff member to highlight their outstanding commitment and dedication to IMH and the patients we serve.
This week’s featured employee is Karen Richert in Food Services. Karen has been a member of the IMH family for 5 years. Her contagious smile is almost always there to greet anyone coming into the cafe for breakfast or lunch. In addition to serving food, she creates special breakfast items and delicious desserts for everyone to enjoy!
Karen has many hobbies when she isn’t at IMH. She enjoys spending time with her family, bowling, reading, playing games on her iPad, or going out for a nice dinner/movie. Karen is known around the kitchen at IMH for pulling harmless pranks on her co-workers. One more way she always puts a smile on everyone’s faces!
When asked about her time at IMH, Karen said, “I love my job because of all the people I get to make smile everyday, whether it’s a patient, a visitor, or an employee. I don’t just serve food I brighten people’s day. When I can make someone’s day better, I have a good day too.”
Thank you Karen for your outstanding service. You are a true Superstar in Healthcare!
And…keep an eye out around Watseka for Karen’s face on the next IMH billboard and watch for her story in the IMH blog!!
