Employee of the Month

Ms. Irene Claw, Environmental Services Technician

Environmental Services Department


It gives me great honor to announce our Employee of the Month for June 2017. Ms. Irene Claw, she has been working in our Environmental Services Department as a Environmental Services Technician for nine plus years and embodies all the characteristics of an Employee of the Month. She has tirelessly devoted herself to providing her time and efforts to the needs of Sage Memorial Hospital.

Irene is a remarkable employee that is known for her dependability, generosity, kindness, and her detail oriented personality. She also helps assist in the Housing Department in making sure all housing units are kept clean and orderly for all arriving staff and visitors. We greatly appreciate Ms. Claw for all she does at Sage Memorial Hospital and for our arriving guests.

Again, on behalf of the Employee of the Month Committee and applaud you. Keep up the good job.
