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.

Managers can be recognized for going above and beyond as well as fellow co-workers. A manager can be recognized by being given a “Way to Go” card. You can find Way to Go nomination forms online below or you can pick-up a form in the human resources department at both hospitals.
Nomination forms for Way to Go may also be picked up in the Human Resources office at either Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford or Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
Way to Go Winners: September 2016
Jean Dearstyne, RN, Labor and Delivery
Jean has been recognized by a physician for her attentiveness and helpfulness during a c-section. She provided a welcomed set of extra hands that made a difference for the physician.
Anna Grieco, ISA Coordinator, Imaging Services
Anna recently went the extra mile to ensure a patient understood instructions for an upcoming CT scan. The patient is an English language learner and was unsure about which procedure he was having and the preparation requirements. Anna wrote out the instructions step by step and had them translated by our translation services to the patient’s native language. The patient was visibly overjoyed when Anna was able to communicate with him and help him understand.
Ann Hartshorn, Medical Secretary II, Diabetes and Endocrinology Services
Ann has been recognized by a colleague for taking effective action to coordinate transport for three patients who required wheelchair assistance to attend appointments in different areas of the hospital at the same time. She calmly and quickly arranged transportation in a friendly and helpful manner. The patients were all very grateful and appreciated her efforts to get them where they were going on time so they didn’t miss their appointments.
Horace Lawson, Housekeeper II, Environmental Services
Horace is a hero to the laboratory staff who experienced a broken pipe during a weekend shift. Horace jumped into action to clean and sanitize all equipment and floors quickly and effectively. He did a fantastic job ensuring that an unforeseen event did not affect patient safety and that the lab could resume activity quickly and safely.
Steven Schott, Lead Mechanic, Maintenance
Steve has been recognized by a colleague who works in an administration building, offsite from our hospital campuses. While trying to attend a meeting in an unfamiliar location at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, she asked Steve for directions. Instead of pointing her in the right direction, Steve struck up a conversation and personally escorted her to the right place so she would not have to worry. What great service to fellow coworkers!
