MidMichigan Earns Five Star Awards from the American Cancer Society
MidMichigan Health has earned the prestigious Five Star Investor and Community Investor awards by the American Cancer Society’s Great Lakes Division, Inc., Workplace Solutions program.
The Five Star awards are given to work sites that are active in fighting cancer on multiple fronts through programs and services of the American Cancer Society. To earn these awards, MidMichigan’s Medical Centers in Alma, Clare, Gladwin and Midland have displayed leadership roles in the fight against cancer. The leadership of these four MidMichigan Health Medical Centers has included initiatives such as distributing internally the American Cancer Society monthly newsletter, sponsoring a team for Relay For Life, sponsorship of a community series for cancer survivors and providing a variety of cancer screening programs throughout the communities that they serve. The MidMichigan website also provides a link to www.cancer.org as a cancer education resource.
At a recent Great Lakes Loons home game at Dow Diamond in Midland, American Cancer Society representatives Kelly Powell, Mark Heffner, Patrick Sheehan and Mel Pelletier presented the Five Star Investor awards to MidMichigan Health. Those representing MidMichigan were: Jami Aldrich of MidMichigan Medical Center–Gratiot, Allison Murphy of MidMichigan Medical Center–Clare, Gail Lynch of MidMichigan Medical Center–Gladwin, and Courtney Szelesi of MidMichigan Medical Center–Midland.
