December is the gift that keeps on giving. And these employees gave their all for Healthy Connections this month. Congratulations to our HealthyConnections Shining Star December 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, Debbie and Monica are winners of a $50 gift card to the HC Hub Company Store.

  • Debbie has done an amazing job and has made the hiring process go so much more smoothly. She is professional, friendly, and helpful to both managers and new employees. She develops a rapport with new hires which certainly helps in getting them off to a good start. I truly appreciate her.”
  • “Monica is the definition of excellence, compassion, and community! She always makes sure to clarify orders so that the right tests get done in a speedy manner. This is such a help for providers and helps us all deliver more quality care.
