In the presence of dozens of friends, colleagues and families, Long Island College Hospital (LICH) celebrated its annual Employee Service Awards. Special guest of honor was Faith Somme-Burges, RN, BS, CWON, of the Division of Nursing.
Somme-Burges, a graduate of the LICH School of Nursing, received a special award for 45 years of dedicated employment. Her specialty is wound care. Knowing what type of dressing to put on what type of wounds and surgical incisions can make the difference between rapid healing and serious complications.
Mack Brown, a rehab tech in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, was one of many employees honored for celebrating 25 years at LICH.
Colin Copeland, director of Human Resources, noted the importance of workplace stability in delivering high quality healthcare to patients. “Employees such as Ms. Somme-Burges, Mr. Mack Brown and many others who have remained at LICH throughout their careers, ensure a continuity of meaningful interaction with our patients. We would not be as good as we are without you being here.”
