Do you want to know what an awesome Employee of the Year looks like? It looks just like this!


Congratulations to Kim Thursby and a huge thank you for all you do!

From the official Press Release:

“For the second time, Kim Thursby has been selected as Employee of the Year by her colleagues at Spectrum Healthcare. Previously honored in 2008, Thursby’s selection for 2014 was announced by Spectrum C.E.O. Robert Cartia at the agency’s annual holiday party. Kim is a computer support technician who trains new employees in the use of Spectrum’s electronic medical records and other technology. She also keeps staff up to date on new technology and computer skills.
Thursby’s nomination stated that Kim is, “Always helpful with a smile. She is engaged in improving the work environment. She helps us with order issues, helping new doctors, troubleshooting, and teaching us new computer skills.” She is the person many Spectrum staffers call on when they need help with technology issues, or to set up a teleconference or other technological tools.
In response to her selection, Thursby said, “It’s an honor to be nominated and selected for a second time, especially being included with so many other wonderful candidates. I would like to thank you all.” Employee of the Year candidates are nominated anonymously and voted upon by their peers.
In addition to an Employee of the Year, the process also produces a list of employees who receive Peer Recognition Awards. Those receiving Peer Recognition Awards for 2014 are April Razo, Clinical Supervisor of the children’s program, Jody Marion, Adult Clinical Supervisor for peers and behavioral health workers, Pauline Lee Bock, Customer Service Representative, and Amy Stanley, Medical Office Manager.”

Close Your Wallet and Pay it Forward

By | Awareness, Community, Motivation | No Comments



Paying it Forward.

We hear the term all the time and it’s usually associated with doing a good deed for someone who then, in turn, does a good deed for the next person they encounter. We often hear it associated with monetary giving, like buying the coffee of the person behind you in line.

But Paying it Forward is so much more than that. It’s not something you pull out of your wallet…it’s an attitude and philosophy tucked firmly into your heart. And the great thing about paying it forward, is that it doesn’t take much to make someone’s day just a little brighter:

It’s volunteering.

It’s listening to a friend and giving support.

It’s “No, you go first.”

It’s giving heartfelt praise and compliments.

It’s holding open a door.

It’s letting go of grudges.

It’s being patient.

It’s giving a smile to someone who is having a hard time finding theirs.

It’s about making the world a better place by helping the people in it.

“We can do no great things, only small things with great love.” ~Mother Teresa

Mixing it Up with the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce

By | Community | No Comments

We love our community: the people, the businesses, the organizations…we are proud to be a part of the beautiful Verde Valley.

We are also proud to be members of the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce and as such, hosted our first Cottonwood Mixer-a monthly get together of chamber members right here at Spectrum. There was great food provided by Cork and Catch, and giveaways from many Chamber members, including Spectrum Healthcare goody bags. To all who attended, thank you and we’ll see you next month!
