UHS Delaware Valley Hospital Recognizes Employees During Hospital Week


Each year the hospital recognizes the work of their employees by holding a week long celebration in honor of their dedication and commitment to our patients. This year, working with Cindy Gardepe and Wanda Van Buren of the Human Resources department the Employee Reward and Recognition team went all out.

The DVH Volunteers sponsored a cookies and punch event on Monday. On Tuesday the Employee Health department offered health tips and served yogurt, that Chobani had graciously donated. A funniest photo contest was held and the winners were announced during an ice cream soda event. Jennifer Smith, Melissa Brannock and Linda Ramsey all received gift certificates. Thursday was the main event with a chicken barbecue and drawings for free prizes. The Sally Dean award winner was also announced, Lorraine Carrillo, hospital social worker. The festivities were culminated with a breakfast bar on Friday and the drawings for prizes that employees took chances on.

The invitation to all employees said in part, “Times change, your dedication remains. You’re there for our patients. You’re there for our hospital and we’re a better place because of you.”

Several employees donate to the hospital during the year so that their co-workers can be recognized in events such as these. “It’s a time to recognize and appreciate the work of our co- workers and to let them know they are UHS Delaware Valley Hospital,” said Dotti Kruppo, Director, Community Relations.

The Reward and Recognition Team is comprised of Cindy Gardepe, Human Resources, Seth Wildenstein, Mike DeBetta, Angel Budine, Chris Finn, Donna Wood, Georgia Hall and Connie Beardslee.

UHS Delaware Valley Hospital is a 25-bed facility based in Walton and offering diagnostic and treatment services, acute care and 24-hour emergency care. The hospital is a member of UHS, a locally-owned, not-for-profit, 916-bed hospital and health care system serving the greater Binghamton area from more than 60 locations around New York's Southern Tier.
