Stories from the Front Lines

In honor of LifeBridge Health being named one of Fortune Magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For," we asked some of our employees what they think about working here. We'll be posting their stories regularly. If you work at LifeBridge Health, we'd love to hear from you!

“My first impression of Sinai was the friendliness of the Human Resources department, and how well the hiring process worked. Then, it came time for me to go to New Employee Orientation. Who is the first person to greet me? Neil Meltzer! No ivory towers here!”

-Rona Karol, Practice Manager for General Surgery Specialists, Sinai Hospital

“I’ve been employed a Sinai Hospital in the Radiology Department for 11 years. I’m so proud to work here I continue to wear my badge when I run errands after work. In the mall and at cash registers I receive positive comments, such as “My mom had her surgery at Sinai” or “Sinai is great, my daughter was delivered in your Labor and Delivery unit.” I stand tall, shoulders arched, and smile from ear to ear.”

-Darlene Rogers, Radiology Coordinator, Radiology Department, Sinai Hospital

“What do I love about my workplace and coworkers? There is A LOT that I love! We are a BIG family (residents and staff) at Courtland Gardens! We create a diverse culture for our staff and residents. We motivate, recognize and we still have fun, while we all continue to work very hard. Trying to make a difference is what makes coming to work a positive and rewarding experience for me.

-Joy Curbean, HR Business Partner, Courtland Gardens Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

“A year ago, my director, Nelson Figueroa, developed a new program that would assure quality of care to our Emergency Room patients. I was asked to place follow up calls to a variety of patients who are discharged from our department. The calls involve finding out how the patient is doing once they leave the ED, and to make sure that they understand the discharge instructions that we give to them. I have found that not only are they receptive to my call, but that they are very appreciative of the caring that is conveyed. Telling someone that we care is easy to do because we at LifeBridge do just that! I know that LifeBridge cares and that is why the staff and our patients are satisfied.”

-Roslyn Klein, RN II, ER-7, Northwest
