It is always an honor to represent Spectrum Healthcare. And when the work we do is recognized by our peers, well, it is an honor, indeed.
Last night, Spectrum Healthcare was recognized at the Northern Arizona Regional Behavioral Health Authority (NARBHA) annual event and we were so proud to receive three top honors, both individually and as an organization.
A huge congratulations to Gina Mendez for receiving her 20 year Service Award. Tirelessly caring for the needs of the people in your community is no small thing and Gina had done so with kindness and compassion for 20 years.
Spectrum’s Work Adjustment Training Program (WAT) took home the Mickey Hawley award for excellence in the provision of behavioral health. The WAT program helps seriously mentally ill clients develop skills and way to increase productivity so that they may overcome employment barriers and find meaningful work within the community.
And last, but certainly not least, Spectrum’s former CEO, Robert Cartia, received NARBHA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Robert has dedicated his life to bettering the lives of those around him and improved mental healthcare has been his mission. Robert began when Spectrum was simply the Verde Valley Guidance Clinic and was instrumental in the crossover to Spectrum’s Integrated Care services, adding Primary Care and Pediatrics to Mental Healthcare services so that ALL the needs of a patient could be met under one roof.
Congratulations not just to those who took home awards last night, but to ALL those who strive to make their community better by helping those in it FEEL better. spectrum healthcare ©2015
Environment of Care.
It’s not a term you hear a lot, unless, like us, your priority is providing healthcare to your community. Then, Environment of Care is a pretty big deal.
Environment of Care is exactly what it sounds like: it’s all the details, both tiny and huge, that blend together to create a warm, friendly, professional healthcare home. From the management of patients to employee training to emergency management to even the maintenance of our vehicles; it is a thousand moving pieces that must constantly be monitored for the highest quality performance to better serve the people who come to us for their healthcare needs.
And although we work together as a team to bring the best environment of care to our patients, our Quality Management Department, under the leadership of its director, Laura Robinson, works tirelessly to make your Spectrum experience the best it can be.
And…it’s not gone unnoticed.
Recently, Spectrum Healthcare was recognized as a “Leading Practice” in the Environment of Care by the Joint Commission, which means that Spectrum’s Environment of Care is now considered a model for other organizations nationwide.
And while it’s wonderful to be recognized within our industry, it’s not why we do what we do. Helping YOU feel better is the reason we are here.
