Spectrum Healthcare…the Safest Place in Town

By | Community | No Comments
Every year, the Cottonwood Fire Department presents an award to the Cottonwood business that provides the safest environment for its staff and customers. The smiling face receiving the award this year is none other than our own Laura Robinson, the director of Quality Management for Spectrum Healthcare. It was presented to Spectrum at the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce January meeting and we couldn’t be prouder.
Thank you to the dedicated men and women of the Cottonwood Fire Department, and thank you to Laura and to every one of our Spectrum Team for making Spectrum not only a great place to work, but a safe place.

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.

World Stroke Day: October 29

By | Awareness, Primary Care, Uncategorized | No Comments

Would you know how to detect the signs of a stroke? Most people don’t, and yet strokes are the 5th highest cause of death in the United States. Your ability to spot a stroke and then take action means the difference between life and death. The American Heart/Stroke Association has created an easy to understand graphic and some catchy tunes to help you recognize and act should a stroke occur.

The good news is that 80% of all strokes are preventable by enacting easy changes to create a healthier lifestyle. So read, sing, learn and make a difference.

SING TO END STROKE

Yes, You CAN

By | Motivation | No Comments

When it comes to making a change, we often hear people say, “I can’t.”

And it’s bothersome, this “I can’t.”

Say something else.

say you don’t want to.
say you’d rather not spend time doing it.
say there are other things you want to do.
say that the hard work scares you.
say just the thought of it exhausts you
say that you don’t know what you’re doing
say that you don’t want to deal with the obstacles in your path.
say that you’re unsure or intimidated or nervous.

Say ANY of those things…

Just don’t say you “can’t.”

Because that’s simply not true. You CAN.

And we can help.

Spectrum Healthcare’s New CEO-April Razo

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Quite often, when a company introduces a new CEO, there is a huge introduction, handshakes and exchanging of names. It takes weeks for the newly appointed CEO to become comfortable in the new surroundings, learn everyone’s names, and fully grasp the flow and dynamics of the organization.

But not at Spectrum Healthcare, because we understand that the person best suited to take command of the wheel and help navigate the organization is the same person who has served on the ship; the person who knows every nook and cranny of the vessel and has worked alongside her fellow crew for years to create the best possible experience for her passengers.

That person is April Razo and it is with great excitement that we announce her new position as Chief Executive Officer of Spectrum Healthcare.

We sat down with April and asked her a few questions about her new position:

Q: Why did you enter the healthcare field?

A: People. I suppose that sounds like a really simple answer, but it’s true. I have always been fascinated with how people work, from the body to the brain. And the more I studied physical healthcare, the more I became intrigued with the mind and how it impacts our behaviors and our interactions with one another. It came easy to me, because I really loved it. I found I have good clinical intuition and I really enjoyed helping couples and families get better. It became my purpose. My clinical training has a lot to do with how I manage people as well; it’s all the same principles. People react and behave certain ways for a reason; it helps to have an understanding of what drives that. I could not imagine doing anything else.

Q: What do you love to do when you’re not busy working at Spectrum?

A: Being CEO of a company like Spectrum means a 24/7 dedication to the people we serve. With something as important as healthcare, there’s no “off” switch. But when I do find myself with a little free time, I dedicate it to my family. And maybe movie night on the couch with a huge bowl of popcorn.

Q: Do you have a person motto:

A: “Nothing great ever came out of comfort zones.

Congratulations, April! And thank you for your commitment to improving the quality of life for those in our community.
