The past year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic has been one of unprecedented challenges that have tested our team members on many levels. In recognition of the collective employee strength and resolve demonstrated across BJC, THRIVE — BJC’s employee well-being initiative highlighting physical, emotional and social health — reimagined the annual employee Hall of Fame for 2021.
This year, the THRIVE Hall of Fame is recognizing the resiliency and overall well-being of team members during these extraordinary times. Nominees were selected by their peers for modeling resiliency and wellness behaviors, supporting their team, helping others during the pandemic, or motivating others to THRIVE.
A committee at each respective organization chose the winners. Now in its 19th year, the 2021 THRIVE Hall of Fame winners are:
Alton Memorial Hospital — Tyler Spagnola
Barnes-Jewish Hospital — Charlotte Gibson
Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital — Katie Moore
Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital — Casey Lance
