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.

Team of the Month: June 2015
Laboratory, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital
in collaboration with Surgical Services and Labor and Delivery
The recent quick actions of the laboratory staff at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, in collaboration with the surgical services and labor and delivery teams, saved the lives of two critical patients.
The first case involved a patient in an emergent situation who required a significant amount of blood. The patient received more than three times the normal amount of blood products and was stabalized by the teamwork and experienced actions of the blood bank and operating room.
The second case concerned a patient whose condition became critical quickly. The phlebotomist in the room detected early signs of distress and alerted the blood bank and appropriate staff well before the patient was critical. The initiative and keen awareness enabled both the blood bank and the labor and delivery teams to stabalize the patient. The staff's early preparation allowed the teams to stay ahead of the demands for patient care and contributed to the positive outcome.
This coordination, collaboration and expertise represent a true team effort.
The Employee of the Month recognition is awarded for the amazing work that an employee performs above and beyond their normal work responsibilities, which aligns directly with any of our five cornerstones: People, Quality, Service, Growth and Finance. The Employee of the Month receives a $50 American Express gift card, $100 from the Medical Staff, an Employee of the Month pin, a framed certificate and parking onsite for the month. Employees of the month are also considered for the Employee of the Year recognition. Employees of the Year are selected by the Rewards & Recognition Committee and receive one week of paid time off and $1,000.
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: June 2015
Holly Lever, Operations Data Analyst, Medical Records
Holly is an incredibly helpful and knowledgeable resource both in her own department and among other departments. She recently took the initiative to lead the implementation of Hallmark Health's new organization-wide scanning solution. She took on the task, which is outside of the scope of her daily workload, because she wanted to ensure that her colleagues succeeded in learning the ins and outs of the new solution. Holly continues to support fellow employees on the scanning system throughout the organization.
Holly can often be found exceeding the responsibilities that fall under her title, and she has cross-trained in all health information management positions. Her excellent problem-solving skills and willingness to fill in for any role needed exemplifies a true team player. Holly's upbeat, positive attitude sets a positive tone day each day.
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.
