YKHC held the annual Employee Appreciation Picnic on August 17. This year’s theme was RAVEN—introducing and raising awareness about our system-wide transition to Electronic Health Records. Despite the rainy weather, the picnic turned out to be a huge success. As some noted: the rain kept the dust down and the wind kept the no-see-ums away.
Still, there was an awesome turnout of YKHC employees and employee family members. Chef Thomas Valadez did an incredible job of preparing a mouth-watering menu including grilled chicken and salmon, as well as a variety of delicious sides. Nobody complained about the absence of the traditional hotdog/hamburger picnic fare.
A big thank you to all the YKHC employees and Senior Leadership Team members who contributed to the success of the picnic by volunteering their time to help set up, man the grills, serve food, and clean up! Thanks also to the many businesses and organizations that contributed door prizes, grill equipment, and other items.
