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
