Morris Hospital Honors Employee for Improving Processes
April 8, 2019 – When it comes to customer service, Morris Hospital’s Sandi Limon is a class act. An Accounts Payable Specialist in the Financial Services department, the Channahon resident goes the extra mile every day to make sure vendors are paid on time. She has been known to stay late to take care of a customer request that came in just as she was walking out the door for the day. It’s Limon’s commitment to service and desire to continually improve processes that make her a stand out, role model employee and Morris Hospital’s March Fire Starter of the Month.
When Limon joined the Morris Hospital team in 2012, she was newly retired after a 25 year career at a telecommunications company in Lisle where she was contracts administration manager. Yet, Limon wasn’t ready for retirement and her search for a part-time position led her to Morris Hospital.
“I’m a type 1 personality, and I like to work,” says Limon. “Right away, I felt that Morris Hospital was a lot like my previous employer in that employees have been here for a long time. Families work here. The environment was very familiar to me.”
Along with her impeccable commitment to customer service, Limon has made a lasting impact at Morris Hospital by bringing improvements to bill paying processes.
“For Sandi, simply doing her job isn’t enough,” says co-worker Michelle Cordrey. “She is always finding a better or more efficient way to complete a task or volunteering to complete a project that no one else wants to do. She can anticipate problems before they occur and takes steps to avoid them. She does all of this without ever looking around for someone to notice her efforts…ever. Her work ethic inspires all of us.”
She also makes a difference by volunteering for Morris Hospital sponsored community events like Salvation Army bell ringing at holiday time.
Limon’s motivation comes from a desire to keep things simple. Along with all of the perks and honors that come with being a Morris Hospital employee, she says her ultimate reward comes from her co-workers.
“On a daily basis, my team members make me feel like I matter. To have people like that is huge,” says Limon. “They make sure I know I matter, and they matter to me.”
In early civilizations, fire starters were the individuals who had the important job of keeping the flame alive. With over 1,300 employees, Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers is the largest employer in Grundy County and winner of the Advisory Board Company’s 2017 Workplace of the Year award.
