Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center named Scott Allen of Nathrop
its third-quarter TRAC
STAR at a hospital ceremony on Oct. 29.
TRAC STAR is an acronym for the core values that guide HRRMC employee performance:
teamwork, recognition, attitude, customer service, safety, talent, accountability
and respect. The TRAC STAR award recognizes outstanding employees and
is presented quarterly.
Allen has worked at HRRMC since 2014. He currently serves as the cardiopulmonary
supervisor and has been instrumental in a collaborative effort to revise
the pulmonary rehab program.
According to an employee who nominated Allen for TRAC STAR, “Scott
is a true mentor and leader. He is very knowledgeable in his field and
is always willing to lend a helping hand.”
Another employee nominator said that Scott treats each and every patient
with respect and kindness.
Hospital CEO Bob Morasko presented Allen with a $200 gift check, a jacket
with the hospital's TRAC logo, and a certificate to be professionally
photographed. A plaque with his photo will be displayed in the hospital
Morasko also acknowledged the other two award finalists, Dan Evans and
Cindy Smith. Both have been employed at the hospital for seven years and
reside in Salida.
Evans, a certified athletic trainer in the Orthopedic Sports Medicine Center,
implemented HRRMC’s athletic training outreach program in 2011 to
provide area high schools with free athletic training. His nominator said,
“Dan makes sure the student athletes are in the best shape and condition
they can be. He’s well respected by his student athletes and staff.”
Smith, Patient Financial Services registration supervisor, was acknowledged
for taking the time to get to know the hospital’s patients and employees.
“She loves them all,” said her nominator. “Cindy is
very accountable, knows her job and helps all departments.”
HRRMC employees can nominate any of their colleagues for the TRAC STAR
award. Members of the hospital's Communications Team review all nominations,
and then cast individual ballots to determine the finalists and winner.
All finalists are eligible to be named TRAC STAR of the Year.
