Annual Service Awards Event

East Norriton, PA (March 17, 2021) – Suburban Community Hospital proudly announces their Annual Employee Service Awards, recognizing 890 total years of service. This year the Employee Service Awards will honor 50 employees who have helped Suburban Community Hospital achieve excellence over the years through their dedicated service.

Suburban Community Hospital Employee Service Awards provides an opportunity to say “thank you” to the dynamic and innovative employees who touch the lives of Suburban’s patients and staff every day through their professionalism, commitment to excellence and diligence. This year’s theme is Suburban Employees – Dedication.

Commenting on the occasion, the COO of Suburban Community Hospital, Dorothy Patzek said, “Five through forty-years tenure depicts the level of trust and commitment on the part of both the employee and the employer. Some of our employees have spent their best years with us; making it important that we recognize and appreciate their loyalty, dedication and hard work at Suburban Community Hospital. We believe that our employees are our biggest assets and we will keep investing in their potential to drive the hospital forward.”

Kevin Carrion, Director of Human Resources of Suburban Community Hospital, remarked that, “Suburban Community Hospital’s Employee Service Awards are part of the hospital’s commitment to appreciate and acknowledge the contributions of our employees. It is also an extension of the hospital’s staff WOW Awards, which accords utmost value to our most important assets – our employees.”

Suburban Community Hospital has always been an employee-focused and patient-centered organization and the hospital places the well-being of its employees uppermost on its corporate credo.
