February is especially sweet for our five Beacon Associates of the Month.

These associates, according to the colleagues and supervisors who nominated them, consistently display each these Beacon values:

  • Compassion
  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Trust

Be sure and shake their hand or pat them on the back when you see them next for their achievement. We thank them for their dedication.



Jamie Schubert, RN
Home Care
Beacon Health Ventures

“Jamie is an extraordinary nurse. She is so patient as she teaches new skills to patients to try and help them gain back their independence. I’ve seen her with the most difficult of patients and she handles herself with grace and dignity and puts each person at ease. Jamie is a great resource, mentor and patient advocate. I’m proud to work with her.”



Kimberly Bailey
Medical Assistant
Beacon Medical Group, Schwartz-Wiekamp

“Kim is like the mother to the younger medical assistants. She has compassion and understanding when they are having a rough time, while helping them to grow into their role. Kim shows great respect for every co-worker. She is always mentioned by name on patient surveys for outstanding patient care and compassion. Kim is a great asset to both Beacon and Schwartz.”



Diana Vogeler, RN
Open Heart Department
Elkhart General Hospital

“Diana is a boss in open heart surgery. She has been here for 18 years and works long hours in the OR, but she is willing to help out — all the time. She always has a smile on her face.”





Mandy Fischer
Professional Recruiter
Beacon Corporate Services

“Whether I need help with recruiting a team member or if I just have a question that she can help with, Mandy is prompt, polite and thorough. She does a great job at keeping everything organized and flowing when helping us through the recruitment and hiring process.”





Jobie Thurin

“Jobie is one of the most genuine and kind-hearted people that I have been lucky enough to meet and work with in my life. She is a friend to everyone and always treats everyone with respect.
