On April 3, 2014, East Penn was recognized as a Healthcare Hero under the Corporate Achievement Hero category at the inaugural Lehigh Valley Business award ceremony. The Healthcare Hero program was established to honor the efforts of individuals and organizations that make a significant impact on the quality of health care in the Greater Lehigh Valley.
The Corporate Achievement Hero category honors businesses for companywide wellness programs, healthy work environments, ergonomic programs or other health-related activities that benefit employees. A panel of independent judges carefully reviewed and scored each nomination and the winner was chosen out of other selected finalists.
East Penn was especially recognized for its achievement with its Primary Care Plus program, on-site medical staff and facilities, effective wellness programs, affordable and comprehensive health care coverage, innovation in ergonomics, and a long-standing health-oriented company culture.
“One of the reasons I love this company so much is that we all embrace the concept of looking out for one another. Being recognized as a Healthcare Corporate Achievement Hero exemplifies our commitment and company culture of protecting the health, safety, and vitality of our employees, their families, and the community around us,” said Sally Miksiewicz, CEO of East Penn.
