Wartburg, a leading provider of senior healthcare and residential services in Westchester County, honored 70 employees for nearly 900 years of service and dedication at the annual Employee Service Awards Ceremony held on March 28 on their beautiful 34-acre campus.
Each year, recognition awards are presented to Wartburg employees for service in five year increments. One employee received recognition for 35 years of dedicated care to our residents in our skilled nursing facility and two for 25 years of service. Ten employees received a gift for 20 years of employment at Wartburg, 19 employees for 15 years and 18 caregivers for 10 years. Wartburg was also honored to recognize 29 employees for five years of care.
Ms. Lula Johnson in our skilled nursing facility celebrated her 35 year anniversary at the 2018 Employee Service Award Ceremony. In the past three decades, she has seen Wartburg’s skilled nursing facility expand, and a new Rehab & ADC facility built as well as Friedrichs affordable senior housing and many other changes to meet the needs of seniors in our community.
Wartburg also presented the Edgar J. Myers Leadership Award, named for the longtime beloved President of the Wartburg Foundation and former board member, to Sherri Noisette, a Wartburg Finance team member. Ms. Noisette, part of the Wartburg family for 17 years, was chosen by her peers to receive this prestigious award for embodying Wartburg’s mission to nurture body, mind and spirit to those entrusted to our care.
“I’m honored to be an employee at Wartburg. I work with a remarkable Home Care team. Truly I am thankful for receiving this award,” said Ms. Noisette.
