At Cedar Haven Healthcare Center in Lebanon, our Employee of the Month and Quarterly Recognition Awards recognize our team for their exemplary contributions. Award winners are rewarded through this Staff Appreciation program for helping to improve the lives of residents, addressing the concerns of our resident’s families and loved ones, and for training and mentoring new team members.

Please join us as we thank our most recent award winners for their dedication and commitment to caring for our residents with excellence. 


Perhaps a member of the Cedar Haven team comes to mind who you feel is deserving of next month’s award? Please submit nominations for the awards at Cedar Haven and share the reasons why you would recommend them for this honor.
