EASTON — University of Maryland Shore Regional Health recently honored a total of 256 team members as Service Award recipients at two events at The Milestone in Easton: a Service Awards Luncheon on Oct. 11 honoring those celebrating 10 or 15 years of employment with the regional health care network, and a Service Awards Dinner on Oct. 12 honoring those celebrating 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years. The dinner occasion also honored 42 staff members who retired in the past year.

Hosted by Ken Kozel, UM SRH president and CEO, and Barbara Hendricks, director, Human Resources, the events featured remark by members of the Senior Leadership team praising individual award recipients and the honorees as a group. Mr. Kozel noted that while for health care associated workers in the U.S., the average tenure with one organization is just slightly over two years, the average tenure for UM Shore Regional Health’s 2018 Service Award honorees is 16.8 years.

“Our staff members’ loyalty to UM Shore Regional Health and their dedication to making our organization the Region’s Leader in Patient-Centered Health Care makes me so proud and grateful to be part of this team,” said Mr. Kozel. “It’s a privilege for me and my fellow members of Senior Leadership to congratulate each honoree personally as we hand out the Service Award Certificates.”
