VCU Health CMH February 2017 Team Member of the Month

(Left to Right) W. Scott Burnette, CEO, VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital presented Katherine DiPaulo, Discharge Planner in Care Management, the VCU Health CMH STAR Service Team Member of the Month Award for February.  There to congratulate Katherine was Amy Lynch, Care Management Manager, Tammy House, Director of Social Work and Ken Libby, Vice President of Finance.

Katherine has been employed at VCU Health CMH for a year and two months.  Katherine resides in Victoria, VA and graduated from both Central of Lunenburg High School and James Madison University.  Her dedication and work ethic are just two of the qualities that make her a wonderful asset to VCU Health CMH. 

The nomination form submitted on her behalf stated, “I am nominating Katherine for Team Member of the Month for her willingness to assist the Hundley Center Social Work Department for approximately five weeks when our full time employee was on leave.  She performed MDS interviews daily with the residents, which is a necessary requirement for our facility.  She willingly provided two hours each afternoon to assist us, before returning to the hospital to her Case Management role.  Her assistance was greatly appreciated.  Great team player!”

In addition to the award certificate, Katherine received a STAR Service lapel pin, letter of commendation from Administration, a $40 gift certificate, and a parking place of her choice for the month.
