Susan Orr of Dayville, Connecticut was named Westview's Employee of the Year for 2016 by the Westview Health Care Center Employee of the Year Nomination Committee. Orr joined the Westview team on January 11, 1982 and works full time as a Certified Nursing Assistant.
The announcement of her award was made by Westview Administrator David T. Panteleakos at the facility's Annual Employee Appreciation Dinner held at the Connecticut National Golf Club in Putnam, CT.
“I have been here for 34 years and never did I think I would be here this long,” Orr remarked. “But Westview makes it easy. Starting from the top, it’s a team here. It’s about taking care of the patients, the joy of making sure they are comfortable and watching them get well and go home. I am honored to have been chosen for this award.”
In an effort to recognize outstanding employees, Westview implemented the Employee of The Year award in 2008 to enhance their established Employee of The Month program, which rewards outstanding employees who demonstrate dedication, outstanding work ethic and a positive attitude that is reflected in their day-to-day work.
"We are extremely fortunate and grateful for Sue’s commitment to our facility’s patients and residents over the last three decades,” stated David T. Panteleakos, Administrator. “She continues to be such an incredibly valuable member to our team and this award is a small token of our appreciation to her dedication.”
As an ardent Patriots fan, Sue enjoys watching football with her family including her husband, Jody, and her two sons, Dustin and Travis. She also loves spending time with her grandson, Ryan, playing games and fishing.
