The Firelands Beacon of Light is a monthly award given to team members who exemplify and exhibit the values of Firelands Regional Medical Center in the areas of service, integrity, respect, unity and stewardship along with their commitment as a member of our community.
According to the nomination for Chris, she exhibits these values. “Chris always puts our patients first, trying to make their experience the best it can be,” the nomination read. “Chris is willing to adjust her schedule as needed and does whatever she can to make the day better for co-workers. Even on busy days, Chris never complains about work load, but offers to help others.”
