It was a hot month on the thermometer but our July Healthy Connections Shining Star Employees of the Month kept their cool. Congratulations to our winners:


WEST: Lacey Goodner

EAST: Grace hill

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, Lacey and Grace are winners of a $50 gift card.

Lacey is an RN at the Mena clinic. Grace is a patient care coordinator at the Little Rock Midtown/Health For Life Clinic.

  • Lacey is such a fine example of all pillars; she has compassion for her patients, excellent nursing skills, and contributes wherever she is needed in the clinic. Lacey doesn’t complain or gossip and she always has a positive attitude.
  • Grace goes above and beyond her duties as a PCC. Grace always has a smile on her face, an eager spirit, and a positive and willing attitude. She provides excellent customer service to every patient that walks through the door.

Congratulations to both Lacey and Grace.
