Marseilles Resident Earns OSF Sunflower Award

3/17/2017 - Ottawa, Illinois

  • Joan Lamb

A longtime staff member at OSF Medical Group – Marseilles was honored this week with the latest Sunflower Award given by OSF HealthCare.  Joan Lamb, also of Marseilles, was the recipient.

Employed with OSF since 2004, Lamb began her journey in the Emergency Department at OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center. In 2010, a new Marseilles office was constructed at 102 Eleventh Street. She has served there as a front office assistant since it opened.

The Sunflower Award is a recognition program offered to any non-nursing staff member with OSF HealthCare.  The winning nomination applauded Lamb for “always being helpful and pleasant.”

Known for treating everyone who walks in the door as if they were her own family member, Lamb’s coworkers also note her ability to provide exceptional service while going above and beyond the call of duty. She can be found planting flowers outside the facility in the summertime and shoveling snow in the winter.

OSF HealthCare encourages patients, family members and fellow staff to recognize caregivers who have provided exceptional care and service by nominating them for an award to honor their dedication. For more information about the Sunflower Award, or to submit a nomination, click here.
