A Medical Office Assistant within OSF HealthCare Center for Health – Streator was the recipient of the Sunflower Award offered by OSF HealthCare.

The Sunflower Award, a recognition program offered to non-nursing Mission Partners with OSF HealthCare, was given to LouAnn Chalkey of Streator. Chalkey is a Medical Office Assistant for OSF Medical Group – General Surgery and has worked with Dr. Caner Celeboglu for 27 years.

A patient stated, "LouAnn was absolutely wonderful. I came in quite nervous and was greeted by her with a wonderful smile and such a caring manner. She made me feel so much better and it made all the difference in the world to me. I can’t say enough good about her. Thankful!"

OSF HealthCare encourages patients, family members and fellow Mission Partners to recognize caregivers who have provided exceptional care and service by nominating them for an award to honor their dedication.
