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 café.

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.”
