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.

March 2015 Employee of the Month: Joy Bowie, Unit Secretary, Medical Intensive Care Unit
At the helm of a nursing station, a unit secretary is vital to the smooth day-to-day flow of patient care. In the medical intensive care unit at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, Joy Bowie is indispensable. She is the go-to person who knows where everything is, keeps information organized, helps in every way she can, and keeps a calm, pleasant attitude with everyone.
“Joy goes above and beyond for patients, family members, and coworkers,” said Alison Shannon, BSN, RN-BC. Joy knows her job inside and out and always knows who to contact and how. “Joy always knows where to find an answer and uses her resources well,” said Alison. In fact, no one has ever heard Joy utter the words “I don’t know.” Instead, her answer is always “Let me find out” or “Let me do that for you!”
Joy’s resourcefulness and problem-solving abilities are augmented by her kindness. “I have seen Joy offer her seat and work station to a physician needing to access patient information or to a tired nurse who has not sat down all day,” said Christine Tafone, RN.
Tomas Palacios III, lead PA-C in the MICU, commends Joy for her above-and-beyond attitude, reliability, and caring. “Joy is a ‘joy’ to work with!” he said.
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.

Both Steven and Joseph are consistently responsive to facilities and maintenance needs at Hallmark Health’s Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice.

They are very much aware that our clinicians are out in severe weather providing home care, and they work very hard to assist in meeting our mission.
Pam Duchene, Vice President of Patient Care services and Chief Nursing Officer
Since she has joined the organization, Pam has gone truly above and beyond in her role. She comes in around the clock, meeting each staff member regardless of his or her shift. Pam’s fresh ideas have brought inspiration to staff and rejuvenated nursing shared governance throughout the system.
Jesse Schacht, Medical Technologist, Laboratory Services, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
Jesse listened to a coworker, who explained that a patient was in critical condition and may require an emergency transfusion of blood. Jesse acted and prepared blood products for transfusion prior to the official order, and this early effort helped save the patient’s life.

Agop continuously works extremely hard, happily, and willingly. He is always willing to clean and assist whenever staff or patients ask him something. His coworkers are in awe of his pride and determination. He is an uplifting force!
