Seacoast Nursing and Rehabilitation honored it’s employees with multiple years of service, during a Employee Recognition breakfast this past week. Awards and gifts were given to employees that had been with the company in some cases, as long as 20 years.
It was a fantastic event, and perhaps the most meaningful moments came when the residents applauded and cheered as each name was announced.
On Thursday, Patrick Thorpe, President of the Gloucester Rotary was on hand with fellow Rotarians to present Seacoast Nursing and Rehabilitation with a check for $1,000. The Gloucester Rotary donated the funds to aid in the renovation of the living room for the short term residents.
Seacoast Executive Director, Stephen Doyle accepted the donation, and expressed his and the staff’s gratitude in allowing Seacoast to improve the stay of their patients.
