Catawba Valley Medical Center (CVMC) recognizes each month a single employee
who epitomizes CARE—one who embodies Courtesy, Attitude, Respect
and Enthusiasm for commitment to maintaining a positive guest relations
atmosphere and to demonstrating a sincere compassion and concern for patients
and fellow staff members. At the end of the calendar year, one employee
is chosen from the twelve recognized throughout the year and is named
“CARE Employee of the Year.” CVMC recently announced Elliot
Boston received this high honor for 2009, according to J. Anthony Rose,
president and CEO of the facility.
An Executive Chef in Nutrition Care, Boston has been employed by CVMC since
2004. “I am so honored to be named CARE employee of the year because
there were so many other employees deserving of the recognition. I feel
very blessed,” said Boston.
Married and the father of two, Boston is a member of Liberty Grove Baptist
Church in Taylorsville where he enjoys teaching children’s Sunday School.
