David Bordonaro, President, recognized McLean employees at a special reception on December 4th for their long service and commitment to providing excellent customer services. He noted that McLean staff includes professionals in many disciplines who provide healthcare in the Health Center, Home Care & Hospice and Outpatient Rehab Clinic. Other staff provides exceptional services for assisted living residents and The Village community members. “I always begin by saying, what would McLean be without you? McLean’s history of quality and care is what makes McLean special. This year we were honored to receive a Top Workplace Award from The Hartford Courant/Fox News. The healthcare environment requires all of us to embrace change and adapt quickly as the industry of healthcare and elderly services evolves. I am proud that we are doing this as on organization and as individuals especially those who are being honored today for long service. Think of all the changes, new programs and services over your time here. This makes us a better organization today and positions us well for the future. Thank you.”
