HealthSouth Sarasota Case Manager Kickboxes Her Way to the Top Winning Companywide Award
SARASOTA, Fla. – HealthSouth, the nation’s leading provider of inpatient rehabilitative care, has named Margaret “Peggy” Conboy, case manager at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Sarasota in Florida as the overall winner of its annual Outstanding Employee Achievement Award. Peggy was selected from more than 23,000 HealthSouth employees in 28 states to receive this honor.
The award winner and finalists are selected based on their performance in four areas: contributions to extraordinary patient experience, team spirit and cooperation, commitment to continuous quality improvement and going above and beyond the call of duty. Finalists were first selected at each of HealthSouth’s 103 hospitals. Then, six finalists were named at the regional level. Those six finalists were honored at an awards banquet held yesterday in Birmingham, Alabama where Peggy was announced as the overall companywide winner.
“The therapists that nominated Peggy for this prestigious award noted that she embodies the principles of comfort, professionalism and respect while creating positive impressions on her patients and families,” said Marcus Braz, MS, DPT, chief executive officer of HealthSouth Sarasota. “Peggy’s patients and their families appreciate her ongoing commitment, support and guidance and acknowledge their appreciation for her quality and caring with a 90 percent patient satisfaction rating.”
In her role at the hospital, she serves as the case manager representative on the Stroke Specialty Program Committee, assists with the orientation of new case workers at a sister hospital, insures that patients’ needs are met by shopping for items such as hearing aids on her own time and helps find speakers for the stroke support group. Outside of work, Peggy takes kickboxing classes three times a week, plans trips with her boyfriend and spends time with her English bulldog Dixie.
