Beebe Healthcare recognized Irene Soucy, registered dietitian with Cape Henlopen High School Wellness Center, as its December Living Our Values Every Day Letter Award recipient.

Joann Economos, who also works at the school-based health center operated by Beebe Medical Group, nominated Soucy for the award.

“We were so very fortunate last year to have Irene Soucy as part of our Cape Wellness Center team. She is a fantastic dietitian, who is well loved by our students, staff and administration,” wrote Economos

Soucy headed up the Cape Fit Club, an after-school club that merges classroom and community in collaboration with health care to offer a program that educates, motivates and facilitates a safe place for students to learn, live and enjoy life through health and wellness.

The Cape Fit Club team formulated an abstract for a poster presentation to be made at the October 2017 Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics conference which has now been formally published in The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Beebe Healthcare’s LOVE Letter Recognition Program was established in 2015 and gives team members the opportunity to be recognized by their peers and supervisors for their service. The program is similar to an employee of the month program. Team members are encouraged to send LOVE notes to other team members during the course of the month. A committee then evaluates the LOVE notes and selects one to receive the monthly LOVE Letter. Winners are announced in a surprise ceremony in which the committee visits the winner in his or her department and presents the award. Employees selected for the award receive parking space in the parking garage for one month, a $100 gift card donated by Fred and Lyndie Hertrich, 100 points toward Beebe LOVE Notes merchandise, the100th anniversary history book “Two Men With a Dream: The Story of Beebe Healthcare,” a letter of congratulations and personal visit from members of the executive team, their photo added to the LOVE Letter wall plaque and a letter to team member’s director and department recognition
