Devyn Kindall receives TRAC STAR award

Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center named Devyn Kindall its fourth-quarter TRAC STAR at a hospital ceremony on Monday, Jan. 27. Kindall is a resident of Salida and has been an HRRMC employee since 2016.

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.

“Devyn has been serving in the role of interim clinics nurse manager for about three months. While being based mostly in the new pavilion, she has also continued to provide nursing oversight and support to BVHC. Devyn is a highly skilled nurse supervisor, and through her interim work as a manager, she has grown her leadership skills,” said HRRMC Vice President of Business Development Peter Edis.

“One of the many great qualities I admire in Devyn is her willingness to assist wherever the clinics need her, and in many instances, on very short notice. Devyn’s flexibility and readiness to lend a helping hand exemplify the type of dedication I feel is the standard among our employees and the reason our organization has continued to flourish.”

According to an employee who nominated Kindall, “She has learned every nursing function in the clinic, so that she can assist whenever and wherever is needed.”

Kindall was awarded a $200 gift check, a jacket with the hospital's TRAC STAR logo, and a certificate to be professionally photographed. A plaque with her photo will be displayed in the hospital café.

CEO Bob Morasko acknowledged the other two award finalists: Salidan Beverly Mosca, a scheduling coordinator for the Imaging Department, and Salidan Chris Sanks, a maintenance tech for Facilities.

Mosca’s nominator said that she always works on improving processes and is a problem solver, especially when it comes to matters of safety.

Sanks was applauded for being reliable and respectful. “Chris shows the utmost respect for all he encounters, patients and co-workers alike,” said his nominator.

HRRMC employees can nominate any colleague for the TRAC STAR award. Members of the hospital's Communications Team review nominations, and then cast ballots to determine the finalists and winner. All finalists are eligible to be named TRAC STAR of the Year.

The ceremony for TRAC STAR of the Year will take place Monday, Feb. 24, at 2 p.m. in the second-floor conference rooms at the hospital, 1000 Rush Dr., Salida.
