Tanya LaCaze --February Shining Star for Pella Regional

Tanya LaCaze, Shining StarPELLA, Iowa— Tanya LaCaze, Prior Authorization, was selected as February Shining Star by co-workers at Pella Regional Health Center.

LaCaze, resident of Knoxville, was nominated based on Attitude, Appearance, Commitment, and Sense of Ownership.

Excerpts from her nomination:
“Tanya is very deserving of Shining Star. Her job is to do prior authorizations for medical imaging and clinic medication. She talks to the insurance companies to get these tests/procedures/medications approved for our patients. The process is tedious and takes someone with perseverance. Tanya handles these tasks daily with efficiency and thoroughness. Anyone who knows what a headache it is to call their own insurance company can imagine what doing that all day is like. She is always ready to answer our questions or switch gears to tackle a different prior authorization needed ASAP. Yet she always has a smile on her face and stays positive. She is a great asset to our team.”

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.

LaCaze will receive a $100 gift, a plaque, and will automatically be included in the Shining Star of the Year award.
