Evangelical’s Rehabilitation Team Presented Excellence Award

October 08, 2018


Evangelical Community Hospital’s inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation experts, including Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, and Occupational Therapy was recently awarded the Team CHOICE Award for the first quarter in fiscal year 2019.

The Team CHOICE Award is given to a department in recognition of the excellence the team displays in the areas of Communication, Hospitality, Ownership, Integrity, Confidentiality, and Empathy. This award is presented quarterly from nominations received from employees throughout the Hospital. 

Rehabilitation experts treat patients who are recovering from a variety of issues, including stroke, total joint replacements, fractures, trauma, amputations, general weakness and debilitation, and compromised cardiovascular and respiratory function.

“This team truly cares about their patients, striving to provide the individualized care needed to help them achieve a successful recovery, as soon as possible. They take the time to get to know the patients personally, in order to make them feel comfortable and gain their trust,” said Angela Lahr, Associate Vice President of Clinical Operations. 

Nominations for Team CHOICE Awards are accepted and reviewed each quarter by a committee of previous Employees of the Month and individual CHOICE Award Winners. The review committee looks for teams that consistently deliver on the Hospital's strategic priorities and contribute to the goal of being in the Top 10% nationally for patient, employee, and physician satisfaction.
