The lantern shines bright for our August 2020 Healthy Connections employees of the month:

West: Carolyn Alexander

East: Kristen West

As Employees of the Month, they are entitled to either a $50 gift card or one day off.

Throughout August, both Carolyn and Kristen exemplified our Healthy Connections three pillars of Excellence, Compassion, and Community.

Carolyn is a patient care coordinator with Evolve Behavioral Health and Medication Management and is based in Mena. Kristen is a patient care coordinator with the Healthy Connections pediatrics clinic in Hot Springs.

Check out what Carolyn’s co-workers had to say about her:

  • “Carolyn volunteers to help in any way she can and always gives her best effort to do a great job and serve our patients well. Carolyn always has a positive attitude and is pleasant to work with.”
  • “She works so hard to make sure everything and everyone is taken care of and then on top of that she helps out in other areas in Healthy Connections. We, the Evolve Behavioral Health team would not know what to do without her.”

And Kristen’s co-workers said this about her:

  • “Kristen always greets patients with a smile and helps them feel welcome. She works hard making sure that all of pediatrics runs as smoothly as possible. She always takes care of whatever is needed for each of her providers. She is a great coworker and is a pleasure to work with.”
  • “Kristen has proven over and over to be a team player. Patients frequently comment to me about how kind and helpful she was when they called or needed something, or when she checked them in. We’re all so blessed here at Central to have a “Kristen” on our team.”
