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.

Fund Development Department
Hallmark Health’s fund development department enhances patient care by raising money to advance our programs. The members of the team do all fundraising activities themselves with efficiency and enthusiasm. They are keenly conscientious of reducing overhead expenses in order to give the maximum amount of funds raised back to the system’s programs. In two and half years, the department has reduced spending by 35 percent, allowing more of their efforts to benefit our patients and health programs.
Funds raised have been used in multiple disciplines and have a huge impact on the community and patients. Notably, development efforts support the following programs, which includes just a few examples of the many areas the department helps enhance.
- · Hematology and Oncology Center, CHEM Center, and Comprehensive Breast Center, including breast health programs and some services not covered by insurance
- · Center for Weight Management and Weight Loss Surgery to expand the program into new space and start an aftercare program for our post-operative patients
- · Pelvic floor program has been able to provide community education

- · Supportive services for women with substance abuse disorders and their substance-exposed newborns
- · Providing CPR training for over 900 high school students a year and Infant CPR Anytime kits for parents with babies in the Special Care Nursery
The development department has seen significant fundraising success through excellent event management, sponsorship development, and focus on cost per dollar raised on a monthly and annual basis. Our development team is truly a collaborative partner at Hallmark Health that has a positive influence across the organization.

As a front desk secretary in a very busy physician’s office, Leona has always been able to maintain a high level of accuracy and efficiency in her work.

Leona has not only mastered the new process, but she has brought to light additional steps to ensure accuracy. Although the new process could have been overwhelming, Leona has managed to maintain her exceptional professionalism and keep the office running smoothly. Claims are going out in a timely manner with accurate insurance and patient information. Leona’s determined attention to detail brings an above-and-beyond level to all she does.
