“Mayor of HealthSouth Braintree” Named Companywide Regional Award Winner
BRAINTREE, Mass. – Reggie Floyd’s title at HealthSouth Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital may be nutrition services aide, but he is better known by fellow employees and patients as the “Mayor of HealthSouth Braintree” due to his friendly personality, ear-to-ear grin and willingness to help patients and fellow employees.
After visiting a loved one recovering from a stroke at HealthSouth Braintree, Reggie was impacted by those who were providing care for patients. As soon as an eligible position came open at the inpatient rehabilitation hospital, he applied so he too could make a difference in the experience and care of the patients overcoming a variety of illnesses and injuries including stroke, spinal cord injuries, hip fractures, amputations and brain injuries.
“Reggie is the type of employee any organization hopes to have. He is positive, dedicated, and takes pride in his job,” says Randy Doherty, chief executive officer of HealthSouth Braintree. “He knows all patients and staff by name, and his vibrant personality enhances the patient experience. He is a true asset to our hospital and nobody is more deserving of this honor.”
Reggie, one of only six finalists out of more than 28,000 HealthSouth employees, received this annual recognition and was honored at an award banquet held yesterday in Birmingham, Alabama. Award finalists were selected based on their performance in four areas: contributions to extraordinary patient experience, team spirit and cooperation, commitment to continuous quality improvement and going above and beyond the call of duty. The process began with each of HealthSouth’s 123 hospitals honoring a hospital employee of the year. Then, six finalists were named at the regional level; and one overall recipient was named for the company.
