CEO/President Regina Widdows released the following message, expressing her appreciation for SERV’s healthcare heroes on Labor Day:
“I want to start off this message by saying thank you. Thank you for your hard work, your dedication, and your devotion to our mission.
Labor Day is a special holiday. It is an opportunity to celebrate our team members and honor the deep commitment each of you has to the consumers, families, and communities we serve. Not enough can be said of your efforts, especially now as we continue to combat and overcome the effects of the pandemic. You are heroes, all of you, and it is your strength and resilience that drives everything we do.
Despite the challenges of the past year, our organization has been able to not only continue operations, but also extend its reach, providing care and services for more people in need. This is thanks to the SERV team, our selfless men and women on the front lines. It is an honor to work alongside so many talented and compassionate professionals. And this holiday weekend, I hope you all take a moment to reflect on the important work you have done throughout this crisis and the impact it has had on our organization and on the lives of those in our care.
As part of SERV’s ongoing campaign to thank our healthcare heroes—and our commitment to creating a culture of continuous recognition—we held several staff appreciation days and pop-up events this summer. We also bolstered our wellbeing program to help our team members reach their full potential, both personally and professionally.
If I didn’t have a chance to speak with you during this summer’s events, please know how much I appreciate the work you do each and every day. You are vital to our mission, and I recognize the tremendous sacrifices you have made and continue to make during this pandemic.
The challenges of this pandemic have only brought us closer together. Although more obstacles lie ahead, I have no doubt that SERV will emerge on the other side of this crisis stronger than ever and that we will continue to foster an environment where our team members thrive.
Have a safe and happy Labor Day!”
