Sweet Home Chicago

Annual Employee Picnic

There’s no place like home—especially our Sweet Home Chicago. At our recent annual employee picnic, guests sampled the best cuisines our city has to offer: deep dish pizza from Giordano’s, Chicago style hot dogs with all the fixings, Italian beef sandwiches, Luigi’s Italian ice, and Eli’s cheesecake. We even nodded to our city’s green river with—you guessed it—Chicago’s own pop, Green River! Guests also enjoyed the jazzy tunes of Stann Champion’s Propaganda Machine.
At the picnic, we announced the winner of our Semi-Annual HeartBeat Drawing, Rochelle McLarty, who took home a $50.00 American Express gift card. Next, CEO Brenda Wolf recognized the “Heart of the Year” winners for 2015, designated for employees who exemplify the La Rabida mission. This year, the award went to Ruby Roy, MD, and Nancy Richer. Dr. Roy and Nancy developed and now lead our Comfort Care program, and exemplify the compassionate, high-quality care that La Rabida staff offer patients and their families. Congratulations, Dr. Roy and Nancy!
