The Team of the Month recognition is awarded for the amazing work that numerous teams, groups, committees and departments perform either on a regular or occasional basis that directly relates to any of our five cornerstones: People, Quality, Service, Growth and Finance. The Team of the Month is given a luncheon celebration hosted by Alan G. Macdonald, president and chief executive officer; banners listing their team name are featured throughout our facilities; a framed certificate; and an opportunity to present at a leadership meeting.
Nomination forms may also be picked up in the Human Resources office at either Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford or Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
Team of the Month: February 2017
Affiliation Advisory Work Group
The affiliation advisory group has served with exceptional leadership, seeking and achieving a tertiary partner to fulfill our vision to bring a new level of services to the care we deliver. Convened in January 2016, the integrated team from administration, medical staff and the board of trustees represented diverse perspectives yet worked with a singular focus to find the right opportunity for the future growth of Hallmark Health. They worked collaboratively with thoughtful and thorough consideration of the best interests of our communities, patients and staff. The team also executed each phase of the planning and review processes as expeditiously as possible to maintain a timely effort. The group’s diligent work culminated in the successful affiliation with Wellforce, the parent company of Tufts Medical Center and Circle Health (Lowell General Hospital) in December 2016. The affiliation advisory group’s success amplifies the longstanding mission of Hallmark Health to provide and preserve high-quality local health care. Their vision and commitment to ensuring our long-term success has changed the course of history for Hallmark Health.
