Bon Secours New York Health System’s Schervier Nursing Care Center, located in the Riverdale section of The Bronx, has named Hector Pou, Social Work Supervisor, as its February 2013 Values in Action award recipient.
Schervier Nursing Care Center’s monthly Values in Action award honors an individual who embodies the mission of Schervier and exemplifies Bon Secours’ core values, namely delivering superior quality care and service to each resident with compassion, respect, integrity and justice. A key part of the care continuum of Schervier, Pou was nominated for the award by his peers for providing excellent service to residents and the community, his knowledge of the ever-changing healthcare landscape, and his contributions to the elderly community as a whole, exemplified by consistently advocating on their behalf.
“Hector is courteous, polite, and respectful, and serves as a mentor and teacher to our fellow staff members,” said Stephen Kazanjian, Director of Mission at Schervier. “His recent involvement in our efforts to advocate at the state capital for the rights of our patients, truly showed his compassion and dedication in what we do on a daily basis to provide good help to those in need. We congratulate Hector on this well-deserved recognition and award.”
A Values in Action ceremony was held in honor of Pou on Monday, March 4, 2013, to celebrate his accomplishments and positive impact on Schervier’s campus and its residents. He was presented with a certificate of excellence, along with a small gift on behalf of Schervier by Kazanjian.
