Staff Recognition

At Sarasota Memorial Health Care System, we understand the importance of celebrating people who truly take pride in taking care of people. The organization's values are based on our desire to create an environment that supports and rewards caring, compassion, excellence, teamwork, trust, mutual respect, recognition and cost-effective, ethical behavior.

Meet Our Employee and Leader of the Year:

This past spring, Sarasota Memorial hosted its annual Awards of Excellence Ceremony to recognize the many achievements of staff, physicians and volunteers. Singled out from more than 4,000 employees as Sarasota Memorial's 2008 EXCEL Employee of the Year was Jackie Bland, RN, of the Renal/Diabetic and Wound Care Unit. An employee since 1982, Bland has served as an invaluable resource for colleagues and a role model for excellence in patient care.

2008 Leader of the Year Adeana Osika heads the Food and Nutrition Department, Diabetes Treatment Services and Comprehensive Bariatric Program. An employee since 1994, Adeana is a true SMHCS success story, starting out as a dietetic intern and working her way up to become a respected director.
