PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Hillcrest Commons Facility Manager Elzbieta Szymczakiewicz and her team were recognized Friday by Cintas Corporation with the Cleaning to Advance the Patient Experience (CAPE) Award.
"Elzbieta and her team are a vital part of our facility and our war against a virus that could be devastating to our population," Rosalee Lampro, Hillcrest Commons Assistant Administrator said. "Her commitment to excellence has played a huge part in helping to be on the winning side of that war so far and we are grateful that she is part of the Hillcrest Commons team."
Szymczakiewicz was one of only eight recipients who were chosen from nearly 700 stories submitted about Environmental Services (EVS) technicians from facilities across the country.
Each contest award winner was given $2,500 and another $2,500 donation to the non-profit organization or charity of their choice. Szymczakiewicz is donating the winnings back to Hillcrest Commons to invest in needed equipment.
The award program was created to celebrate EVS technicians.
