Magruder Hospital recently held its annual recognition event to honor employees, medical staff and board members for years of dedicated service through the end of 2014.
Highlighting the evening was the announcing of Magruder’s Employee of the Year nominees for 2014. Of those nominated, Johanna Hofacker, a Cook at Magruder's Fulton Street Cafe', was selected as Employee of the Year. In announcing Hofacker's award, Todd Almendinger, President & CEO, shared some comments submitted in her nomination.
“Johanna is a very hard worker. She helps everyone out, no matter what position they are working. Johanna covers all cook positions, does our weekly food orders, plans our weekly entrée specials menu, covers the late night shift when needed. She really thinks about others, if they are hurt or having any difficulties she will cover for them and assist them with tasks, so they have an easier time each day. She never gets “put out” when asked to do extra tasks. Johanna is a truly great example of a team player. Her coworkers enjoy working with her because she likes to have a good time, works to make the job fun, but doesn’t ignore the job to be done.”
