Employee Spotlight of the Month
The Employee Spotlight of the Month highlights a different person each month, not for any specific accomplishment, or any one specific trait, but because they are a valuable part of our team. We will get to know more about each other and how we each add value to Medical Alternatives and our persons served! Nominated employees are employees that embody our person-centered approach, are helpful, have a great attitude, and/or contributes to the team.
