Recognized For Excellence – Kerri Glassman and Bettina Evans, Delaware County Memorial Hospital

Joelle McManus, site coordinator for Radiology services at Crozer-Keystone Broomall and Delaware County Memorial Hospital, shares the following patient compliments recognizing two radiology technologists at Delaware County Memorial Hospital: 

Kerri Glassman in Ultrasound – A patient made it a point to let us know that Kerri was caring and compassionate – Crozer-Keystone is lucky to have her on staff! 

Bettina Evans in Nuclear Medicine – A patient called to say she had a brain scan was very nervous and anxious. Bettina was amazing! She was a calming presence and went above and beyond to make the patient feel comfortable. Bettina provided excellent customer service! 

Thank you, Kerri and Bettina. Keep up the great work – it doesn’t go unnoticed!

Crozer-Keystone ‘Cycle to Save Lives’ Fitness Challenge: April 1-30

Sent on behalf of Crozer-Keystone Transplant Team

For the 2019 National Donate Life Month theme, Donate Life America was inspired by bicycles and the phrase “Life is a beautiful ride.” Like the donation and transplant journey, a bicycle serves as a symbol of progress, renewal and the moving circle of life. 

In celebration of National Donate Life Month and this year’s theme, Crozer-Keystone Health System’s Transplant team is hosting a “Cycle to Save Lives” fitness challenge during the month of April. Individuals can participate in any fitness location. Whoever can log the most miles in a month wins a gift card. 

Teams can be made up of 2 to 5 members. Weekly averages are calculated by the total number of hours exercised per team, divided by the number of team members. All participants must register by Friday, March 22 via Marissa McAndrew at Marissa.McAndrew@crozer.org or 610-619-8420. 

In honor of National Donate Life Month, we ask you to consider your role in this lifesaving and healing journey, and how you can inspire others to provide hope through donor registration and living donation. 

We each carry the potential to help make LIFE a beautiful ride for ourselves, and for others.
