Kelli Sytsma-- Pella Regional’s January Shining Star

PELLA, Iowa— Kelli Sytsma, Home Health Care, was recently selected by a group of her co-workers as the January 2014 Shining Star at Pella Regional Health Center.

Sytsma, resident of Pella, was nominated based on her Attitude, Commitment, and Sense of Ownership.

Excerpt from her nomination:

“Kelli has brought a whole new standard to home health. Her commitment to her patients is above and beyond. Many of our patients have called to thank us for sending her to them. I don’t think there’s ever been a time when I’ve called Kelli to ask her to see an extra patient and she’s said no. She is very willing and ready to help the staff and our patients whenever and wherever needed. She is absolutely amazing and always does those “extra things” such as a hairstyle for some of the ladies or just simply spending extra time with a patient so they are not alone. She’s a wonderful employee!”

Shining Star is a reward and recognition program at Pella Regional designed to acknowledge an employee each month that demonstrates outstanding standards of behavior and inspires others to do their best.

Sytsma will receive a $100 gift, an ad in the local paper, a plaque, and will automatically be included in the Shining Star of the Year award.
