STAR Awards

Our STAR (Special Thanks and Recognition) program recognizes employees for their outstanding work and commitment to safety, excellent outcomes and an unmatched patient experience.

Congratulations to our February STAR Employee of the Month, Georgia Kalaitzakis, Housekeeper, Environmental Services!


Georgia was nominated by a manager, who wrote, “Georgia was cleaning a patient room when she noticed the patient appeared to be having a seizure. Georgia immediately notified the physicians and nursing staff, interrupting teaching rounds to do so. Georgia's responsiveness and willingness to step outside her assigned duties to bring attention to the patient assured prompt care and reassured the patient's family who were at the patient's side.”

Georgia has been at Swedish since 2016.
