Finne’s selection was celebrated at a luncheon, where President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner presented her with a trophy recognizing her achievements.
Finne, a resident of Middle Island, began her career at Southampton Hospital in 2007 as a dietary worker in the Nutritional Services Department and was chosen as their employee of the month in 2008. Finne transferred to the Rehabilitative Services Department in November 2009 as a receptionist, associate II.
According to the many accolades by patients and co-workers, it is clear why Finne was chosen for this award:
“Rachel came to our support when my husband’s aid was unable to come with us for his physical therapy appointment. My husband is in a wheelchair and I needed help pushing him. Rachel helped me bring him upstairs and when his appointment was over, she made sure we made it to our car safely.”
“Rachel is very calm and understanding. She deals with 'us' patients in a professional manner.”
“Rachel is always cooperative, completes tasks quickly and accurately and is pro-active in assuring customers are satisfied.”
Southampton Hospital is very lucky to have Rachel Finne as part of our team.
