Healthy Connections is excited to announce its August 2021 Shining STAR employees of the month:



Each month across the Healthy Connections Community Health Network, exemplary employees are nominated for this award for representing our Three Pillars: Excellence, Compassion, and Community. These pillars are considered heavily when choosing winners.

As winners of this Shining STAR award, Erica and Mary are winners of a $50 gift card.

Erica is a financial counselor for the West clinics based in Mena.

  • “Erica is a great example of a model employee. She is always willing to take on new responsibilities and help out wherever she is needed. She has a positive attitude and focuses on finding a solution instead of the problem.”
  • “Erica genuinely cares for our patients and her customer service is unmatched.”

Mary is an X-Ray tech based at the Hot Springs Chippewa clinic:

  • “Mary is always willing to jump in and help wherever she can and you never have to ask her. She just dives right in to make sure everything is being done.”
  • “She goes above and beyond her job duties and I know that I can always count on Mary when I am needing help.”

Congratulations to both Erica and Mary.
