VCU Health CMH Team Member of the Month

(Left to Right) W. Scott Burnette, CEO, VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital presented Patricia (Patti) Turczany, Physical Therapist, the VCU Health CMH STAR Service Team Member of the Month Award for March.  There to congratulate Patti was Donna Jarrell, Rehab Director and Todd Howell, Vice President of Professional Services.

Patti has been employed at VCU Health CMH for three and a half years.  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, “Patti has been my life line over the last seven months.  I experienced a back injury that left me with a bad limp and numbness in my leg.  Patti has helped me to understand what happened and what I had to do to recover.  Prior to seeing Patti, I saw three other therapist in our area that did not have the right experience or knowledge to deal with my injury.  Through word of mouth from prior patients that had worked with Patti, I was able to find her and choose her to help me.  Her expertise, her education level and her ongoing commitment to further her education is outstanding.  Within two weeks of working with Patti, I began to feel like my old self again and when I felt like giving up she supported me during emotional ups and downs and explained that even though recovery would be slow, I would recover over the next 1-2 years.  Her reputation is outstanding; not only her education and ability as a Physical Therapist, but her kindness, her ability to encourage you and her ability to provide you with the emotional support you need to overcome your disabilities.  Patti represents and always shows a commitment to excellence in all she does, as an employee, as a patient advocate, as a provider, as a coworker and as a member of our community.  We are beyond lucky to have her here at VCU Health CMH taking care of us.”

In addition to the award certificate, Patti 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.
