Recognize a Co-Worker

Each and every day, our associates go above and beyond to provide outstanding care for our patients. SMH receives dozens of letters, emails and phone calls every week telling us stories about the impression staff members made on our patients and their loved ones, and our associates often recognize one another for outstanding performance. Nominate a co-worker for going above and beyond!
