UHS Delaware Valley Hospital Week celebration
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
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
