Welcome to Krista's Korner
Our Senior Living Blog
4 years ago, St. Camillus created the Spirit of St. Camillus award. The Spirit of St. Camillus award allows employees to nominate fellow team members annually who exemplify our mission at St. Camillus. A committee made up of St. Camillus leadership members then votes on an employee that has displayed exemplary service to our organization while living out mission at the same time. The Spirit of St. Camillus award is no easy feat and with over 500 employees that could be chosen as this year’s winner!
The 2018 Spirit of St. Camillus Award winner is Stella Olson. Stella has worked in Assisted Living food service for 34 years as both a dishwasher and a cook! Throughout her 34 years on campus, Stella has always had an exceptionally positive attitude and is known for her generosity and contagious smile.
“I have so much love for everyone here at St. Camillus. It is such an amazing organization to work for and I treasure the employees and residents.” – Stella Olson
This year, Stella’s home tragically burned down and she was temporarily placed in a shelter with her family. Astoundingly, Stella showed up to work just 3 days after this event and stated “I am so blessed to be a part of St. Camillus and I am happy to be back at work.” As you can see, Stella works tirelessly and considers St. Camillus and our Jesuits community her family. Stella also has a personal connection to St. Camillus as her husband lived in the Health Center for 6 years before he passed away. When she is not at work, Stella is taking care of her 6 children, 3 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren!
Employee appreciation and recognition at St. Camillus is vital to our mission and vision for the future. Besides the Spirit of St. Camillus Award, we also have countless other opportunities to highlight both long and short term appreciation. Employee appreciation and recognition opportunities include: Piece of the Puzzle, Caught in the Act, Exceptional Achievement, Years of Service, Team Member Recognition, Retirement Awards and Exceptional Team awards. If you would like to nominate a team or team member, please see our Human Resources department for additional information.
Congratulations again to Stella for your extraordinary dedication to St. Camillus and its’ mission!
