Rose Shifflett, environmental services attendant on the Sixth Floor at Fairfield Medical Center has been recognized as a recipient of the Heart of Healthcare Award from the Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) and Kimberly-Clark.

“I was so very honored to hear that Rose received this award due to her hard work and dedication to her job and her patients,” said Pam Starlin, Environmental Services director. “She gives 100 percent each day and we are so proud of her.”

The Heart of Healthcare Award is presented annually to outstanding frontline environmental services technicians who make a difference for patients across all care settings. The award is a component of the Heart of Healthcare campaign developed by AHE and Kimberly-Clark Professional, which recognizes and elevates the critical role that frontline environmental services technicians play in the ever-changing healthcare environment.

“AHE congratulates all Heart of Healthcare honorees for their dedication to patients and hospitals,” said Patti Costello, executive director of AHE. “We were thrilled to receive triple the number of nominations for this year’s Heart of Healthcare Awards. Engagement in this campaign is a reflection of a growing awareness of and appreciation for the integral role environmental services departments play in supporting a culture of quality outcomes for patient safety and satisfaction.”

A panel of AHE members reviewed all submissions and selected the winners. Shifflet was recognized as one of four honorees. The other recipients represented Florida, New York and Iowa.
