High honors for Elderwood’s Myhalenko

Wheatfield resident Kelly Myhalenko, a dietitian at Elderwood at Wheatfield, has been named an Elderwood 2017 Service Excellence Award winner.

Considered Elderwood’s highest honor, the award is presented annually to staff who work toward providing quality health care and demonstrate honesty, integrity, reliability, teamwork and respect for co-workers, residents and families. To be considered for the award, staff must be full-time employees who have been with Elderwood 10 years or longer.

“Kelly consistently demonstrates Elderwood’s core values and leads by example on a daily basis,” said Administrator Shannon Cayea. “Resident health and wellness is always a top priority and she is always willing to jump in and assist any department when needed.”

The Service Excellence Award was presented at Elderwood’s annual staff recognition celebration honoring employees marking milestone anniversaries of five, 10 or more years with the organization. In all, 33 percent of Elderwood staff have dedicated five or more years of service, and 20 percent of employees have been with Elderwood for 10 or more years. This year, Elderwood recognized 254 individuals for five to 35 years of service.
