Congratulations to Linn Montjoy, Spectrum Healthcare’s 2015 Employee of the Year!
 
Linn is the Team Lead on the Intensive Care Management Team for adult clients with serious mental illness and substance use disorders. He leads a team of eight who help high risk clients with wrap around services.
 
SMI Adult Clinical Supervisor Gina Vega-Mendez said of Montjoy, “Linn is an exemplary employee and always willing to go the extra mile.  He has a strong work ethic and professional manner.  He is very knowledgeable, and makes customer service, treating people with dignity and respect, and providing timely responses a part of his daily work. His goal is to provide the best care he can to all clients.”  She added, “Linn’s personal motivation and desire to do the best possible job makes him a true asset.”
 
Commenting on his selection as employee of the year, he said “It was an absolute honor and meant a great deal because of how far I’ve come in my own recovery due to people like those I work with. I do the work that I do because I believe everybody deserves an opportunity for quality of life.”
 
Montjoy says he’s a big believer in leaving things better than he found them, and that’s what he preaches to his team. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, and came to work at Spectrum Healthcare in January of 2014. He quickly earned the respect of coworkers and was voted employee of the year in his first year of eligibility. In response to his selection, Montjoy wrote to his colleagues, “This award is not about me but about each and every one of you, and empowering our clients of which many now are young children sleeping in a safe bed, drug addicts clean of drugs, alcoholics sober from alcohol and mentally unstable stable with the quality of life that they deserve. Asked how he unwinds after a day of helping others, Montjoy responded, “golf, golf, golf, and maybe a little fishing.”
 
Spectrum Healthcare C.E.O. April Razo added, “There is no one more deserving than Linn. He goes the extra mile for his clients and his coworkers everyday without question.”
 
Also nominated for Employee of the Year and receiving Peer Recognition Awards were Amy Stanley, Member Services Administrator, Eric Brandenburg IT Help Desk Clerk, Shawn Evans, Facilities Custodian, Rob Petsche, Children’s Clinical Director, and Mimi Evans, Customer Service Representative.
 
We are so proud of our team and their dedication to their patients and community!

Spectrum Recognized at NARBHA’s Annual Event

By | Awareness, Behavioral Health, Community, Integrated Care, Mental Health | No Comments

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 arizona_0031spectrum healthcare arizona_0032spectrum healthcare arizona_0033spectrum healthcare ©2015

A Leader in Environment of Care

By | Community, Integrated Care, Mental Health, Primary Care, Uncategorized | No Comments

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.
