CHRISTUS Santa Rosa honors more than 2,000 years of dedicated service September 16, 2016

Tonight, 88 CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Associates are honored for their years of dedication to spreading the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. The group will receive accolades at a special reception in the Sky Room at the University of the Incarnate Word. Six of these Associates have been serving our ministry since 1976 and are on the job today!

“For an Associate to serve Christ for decades through our healing ministry is a testament to our commitment to the patients and families we are privileged to serve,” said Ken Haynes, CEO, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System. “Our Associates are more than just employees, they are our family. We are honored to recognize their dedication to our community.”

KENS 5 Meteorologist Bill Taylor will emcee the dinner event, in which the group of Associates will be recognized in multiple categories, including 40, 35, 30, 25, and 20 years of continuous service. Combined, they have more than 2,280 years of commitment to the ministry. From nurses to housekeepers, these Associates are the faces of excellence within our Hospitals.

"On behalf of the CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System leadership team, the Board of Directors, and the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, I would like to offer my sincerest thanks to our recognized Associates,” Haynes added.
