The CARE Award stands for Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, and Enthusiasm.
What is the CARE Award?
The CARE Award is designed to recognize an extraordinary employee who exemplifies our organization’s mission and vision. Additionally, those nominated exemplify our values of compassion, respect, integrity, quality, and service and demonstrate AIDET (an acronym that stands for Acknowledge, Introduce, Duration, Explanation, and Thank You) in every encounter. The award serves as a way to acknowledge the great work and contribution of our non-nurse team members and sets the standard for others to emulate.
