Life as an employee of Hallmark Health System
As cliché as it sounds, Hallmark Health System is a family. Our focus is simple: we care for our patients to the best of our ability, and this focus is one that attracts a very giving group of staff.
Through bone marrow drives and blood drives and even "paid time off" donations to our colleagues, people show their concern for their co-workers. Through our Community Teams, we have built strong connections with the population that we serve, including the students, elderly and underprivileged. And through our Employee Giving program, our employee community even gives back to our own non-profit organization. Our buildings are also filled with wonderful volunteers that support the important work that we do. It is pride in our mission that motivates us all.
Each year we honor the volunteers and the employees who reach milestones in their service to Hallmark Health System and it is always very rewarding to honor the folks who have been here a long time. Nothing says more about a strong culture than this kind of longevity and devotion.
Caring for people who are ill is stressful though, and often sad, so together we have tried to build an environment where we can show our team spirit in ways that make the workplace fun.

Nomination forms for Employee of the Month may also be picked-up in the Human Resources Office at either Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford or Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
Employee of the Month - Janine McGrath, Assistant Professor, Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Nursing and Radiography Programs
Janine goes above and beyond for her students. They often praise her for her ability to relate to them, encourage them and make them comfortable in the clinical setting. Janine is able to keep the class engaged and relates all her lectures to real situations and stresses patient safety. Even at the last minute she was able to step in for another professor and complete a quality lecture with very little time to prepare. As one student said, “Overall my experience with Janine was awesome I will never forget what I learned from her. She is very professional and intelligent, an extremely great instructor.”
Recently a new student clinical-setting orientation was held and Janine prepared numerous samples of work for them to become familiar with what would be expected of them. No one was aware that she was preparing these documents and the team was surprised and delighted to see her work as she shared them with the new students. It was a delight to have such a helpful team member.
Janine has worked hard to master item writing (test preparation) since beginning her work with Lawrence Memorial/Regis College. She becomes an extra exam writer each semester and the questions she develops are showing improved test statistics as her work improves.
Janine is a tutor for evening students and spends many hours working with them in small groups and individually to ensure they have success when testing. One student remarked, “I already have a degree. Janine is the best professor I have ever had. Always makes learning fun. Students in previous years remember her for years to come. She is a legacy and such a fun positive person to be around. She could teach a lecture on rocks and make it interesting.”
The Way to Go Recognition is a monthly, on-the-spot recognition of employees who perform an act that aligns directly with any of our five cornerstones: People, Quality, Service, Growth and Finance. Way to Go winners are awarded a special Way To Go Lanyard and a $25 American Express gift card.
