Employee Recognition

Each month, we honor employees who have demonstrated their commitment and dedication to the facility. Annually, we recognize employees for their years of service and dedication to the hospital as well as those performing beyond expectations.

Annual Service Awards Banquet – Every spring we hold our Annual Service Awards Banquet and honor employees who are celebrating a milestone anniversary.  In addition, we honor those who have received special recognition throughout the year, such as the Frist Humanitarian award or Spirit of Excellence Hall of Fame.  We have a wonderful evening where employees, their guests, management, administration, the president of medical staff and the Board of Trustees enjoy food, entertainment, and receive their awards and gifts in recognition for their contribution over the years to the hospital.

Spirit of Excellence– Every month, we honor employees who have demonstrated strong work ethic, teamwork and initiative.  These are employees who go "above and beyond the call of duty” to serve a patient, family member, physician, or colleague.  Each quarter, we then select a Spirit of Excellence All-Star, which honors the person who stands out as exemplary.  At the annual awards banquet, we honor the quarterly All-Stars and award the Spirit of Excellence Hall of Fame, which is voted on by all employees of Garden Park.

Frist Humanitarian Awards – Garden Park recognizes people who demonstrate a level of commitment and caring that goes beyond the everyday and who inspire us with their compassion, dedication and spirit.  Employees, physicians and volunteers are eligible.  Honorees are recognized for going above and beyond day-to-day responsibilities in overall service to the community and gives unselfishly service to our patients. These awards honor those who have exemplified the humanitarian spirit upon which our hospital is founded.

Team of the Year- Every year we recognize a team that has distinguished itself by making a special contribution through dedication and teamwork.  This team has exemplified customer service and found ways to enhance Garden Park.

Leader of the Year- Every year we recognize a leader who has distinguished himself or herself by making a special contribution through his or her leadership.  This is a leader who has exemplified service behavior, serves as a role model and found ways to enhance Garden Park through his or her vision and commitment to our mission. 

Volunteer of the Year – Each year we honor one of our hospital volunteers for his or her service and contribution to Garden Park.  Our volunteers unselfishly give of their time and energy to assist with our patients, family members, and staff.  They provide a caring touch and are dedicated to making Garden Parkmore comfortable for each person who walks through our doors.

Employee Anniversary – To recognize your special day, we mail an anniversary card each year to your home with a note of thanks and a voucher for a free lunch in the Garden Café.
