Team Member Awards and Recognition

St. Elizabeth Physicians’ team members soon realize the true reward for a job well done is the smile they bring to someone's face or the heartfelt appreciation expressed by a patient. However, STEP values our hardworking team members, and we strive to continually provide additional acknowledgement of ideas, effort, and dedication with a variety of recognition and reward programs.


Franciscan Service Awards

Inspired by the vision of St. Francis, this award given each month was established to recognize team members who embody our mission and our core values and who often go the "extra mile". What makes the award so special is that team members are offered a chance to nominate their own peers who live the Mission and Core Values and set an example for others to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Recipients are eligible for an all-expense paid Franciscan Pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy, the birthplace of St. Francis, our patron Saint.


You’ve Been Spotted

Sometimes just a simple note recognizing someone's effort can brighten a day. The You’ve Been Spotted Program is a peer recognition program through which team members can recognize one another for specific accomplishments regarding patient care, customer services or team work. All recipients are recognized for their accomplishment, presented with a letter from the President of St. Elizabeth Physicians and named in the STE bi-monthly newsletter.
All recipients are entered in a drawing for $100 monthly. You’ve Been Spotted, a peer recognition program through which team members can recognize one another for specific accomplishments regarding patient care, customer services or team work.


Perfect Attendance Award

Each month, team members who have not missed any days of work within that month are entered into a monthly drawing. Team members who win the drawing receive practice-wide recognition and a $100 gift added to their paycheck.


Dress-Down Days

Throughout the year, team members are given many chances to dress down for a particular charity by making a small donation. Special dress-down days are also awarded throughout the year at no cost to the team member for various reasons. Each Monday has been designated as Go Pink 365 day, aimed at increasing awareness for breast cancer prevention. Team members have been granted permission to wear approved pink tops.


Annual Service Awards Banquet

Each year, team members who reach a designated anniversary year are invited to attend an awards banquet honoring their years of service to St. Elizabeth Physicians. During the dinner presentation, recipients receive a special anniversary pin. In addition, team members are acknowledged in the STE bi-monthly newsletter.


Team Member Appreciation Week

Team members at St. Elizabeth Physicians work hard throughout the year to fulfill our mission in an environment brimming with exceptionally high standards and constant challenges. Beyond our other recognition programs, we are honored to celebrate team member accomplishments through a week-long celebration that includes everything from complimentary lunches to daily door-prize drawings.
