Elsie and the 2021 Employees of the Month (listed below) were honored on April 28, 2022. LCHS employees receive a ballot with the Employees of the Month named and cast their vote anonymously for the person they believe deserves the Employee of the Year recognition Employee.


The co-worker that nominated Elsie said that "she goes above and beyond for the laboratory department. She had willingly returned multiple times when the lab was short-staffed to lend a helping hand. She goes above and beyond for the department and genuinely cares about her co-workers and the patients she cares for, always sensing if you are down or having a bad day and has a way of making the day better."


According to Elsie, "Working with dedicated, compassionate co-workers made her decision to return an easy one. Even though a lot has changed over the last 50 years, a warm smile and providing great care for our patients have not. Our patients can go anywhere for their care, so I try to let each patient know that we are thankful they chose our hospital."


"Elsie exemplifies our culture of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect, and excellence," stated Gerald R. Cayer, LCHS Chief Executive Officer. "She takes her role seriously and demonstrates the importance of providing quality care while positively encouraging and impacting patients, visitors, and her co-workers."
