Dayville resident Michaeleen Lannon was recently awarded Westview Health Care Center’s Employee of the Month distinction for January 2021. Lannon has been employed at the Dayville skilled nursing facility since October 2019 as one of their many essential employees as a Certified Nursing Assistant.
Like so many other health care workers, Michaeleen, or “Mikey”, has dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic and all of its many discomforts and challenges with patience, grace and adaptability. Continually striving to provide the best care possible to the patients and residents of Westview, Mikey’s positive demeanor and “can do” attitude has been a strength not only for the recipients of her care but also with her many coworkers.
Mikey is extremely family-oriented and can often be found surrounded by her loved ones including: Edward T. Murphy, father; Maureen Lannon, mother; Murphy Lannon, daughter; Michele Craig, sister; and her dog, Tyson “Chalupa” Craig. Her other interests include: the Grateful Dead, car and bike racing, playing pool and following the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“It is a great honor to receive this award,” remarked Lannon. “I truly love what I do and the patients and residents at Westview bring so much joy to my life. I feel that it is a duty for a society to care for their elderly and I am very proud to be a Westview Warrior!”
“Ms. Lannon’s contagious positive attitude and innate ability to connect with the patients, residents and staff at Westview should be commended,” stated David T. Panteleakos, Administrator. “We’re very grateful for her high level of dedication and unyielding Westview Warrior spirit.”
