Employee Thank You’s

Mark and Cindy,
So many times in Long term care, we as the providers, here always the bad stuff and are expected to be the problem solvers.  That is why most of us are in this business, to problem solve and make a difference in the lives of the people we care for.

I just want to say, even with the state of Illinois doing what they are doing to Long term care right.  I LOVE my job and the company that I work for. We are survivors and we are all sticking together through the tough times as we should. I believe this is due to the leadership and support that we receive to motivate us and keep us focused.  I myself appreciate all that Petersen Company does for us.

I am truly thankful for Margaret Ferris and the support and leadership that she gives me daily – no matter how many times I call her. I just wanted to say thank you. 
Ethel Logue, Administrator – Roseville Rehabilitation and Health Care 

Mark and Cindy,
I can’t say how proud I am to work for Petersen Health Care. When the chips are down I know that the home office is pooling all of their resources to assist our residents and staff. I know that money is going to be tight from the state but I know that you do what you have to , to make things work out. When you dig deep inside you’re soul it is amazing the results that you can bring to a building and company. My team and I like everyone else will always carry the Petersen torch because it stands for caring for our residents and staff the right way. No corners are cut and hard work is a daily occurrence because our residents and family deserve the very best and get it. Thank You for all of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. You always tell us when we do good things and guide us through troubling times. Thank You for everything that we forget to tell you from time to time. Have a great day .
Ken Bogard, Administrator – North Aurora Care Center

You truly are an amazing person! I could never be more proud or honored to work for anyone else. It is the compassion and respect that you have/show for each and everyone of your many employees from Corporate employees to your housekeepers that makes me strive to be a better person. I am absolutely sure that your gift to Erin will be appreciated more than you will ever know. While unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do for her to replace her baby girl, your generosity is certain to ease at least some of the financial burden that is sure to follow. You are right… losing a child, at any age is just unimaginable to me. My heart continues to ache for her…
Administrator, Sheldon Health Care Center

Mark,
Last week when I was in Canton a Community Member came in and said the nicest thing about you and I thought I should share it!  She knew you when you were the Administrator at Sunset RHC and the thing that impresses her the most is that you cared so much about Canton while you were at Sunset, but even after leaving Canton you continue to care just as much about their community, and that that speaks volumes to her. It made me feel so good to hear her say that because we, as employees, know your views on the communities we serve but it was nice to hear that the communities see it too.

Mark,
Thank you for allowing me to continue to be a part of the wonderful Petersen Health Care family.  I love being able to tell people that I am a member of this family.  I have discharge planners and physicians that will say to me, “Oh, I hear nothing but good things from families about those buildings.” Thank you,
Marie Headlee, Community Relations Coordinator

Mark,
We are the ones who are blessed?. Not many owners take the time to treat their staff with respect and acknowledge them as human beings.  Thanks so much!
Shannon Paden, Vandalia Rehabilitation & Health Care Center

Dear Mark,
I want to thank you for the most gracious generosity you provided at the banquet. The fun, food and concert will not be matched by any other banquet.  I must tell you what touched me the most is your altruism for your family, staff and community.  In my 23 years of practice, I have never seen such loyalty & dedication.  I must share, you have touched my heart and I am proud to be part of the Petersen family through RehabCare. 
Cindy, Director of Operations, RehabCare

Mark,
With all the owners we have had over the years, Petersen Health Care is the best! You really show your employees you care! Thanks for the Christmas Bonus and the Birthday Card. I enjoy working for your company and for the residents at our facility.
