Orange resident Diane Vanacore, along with Bob Holland and Dan Staff, both of Stratford, are Bridgeport Hospital’s newest Employees of the Quarter for their outstanding service to patients and colleagues during the period October–December 2012.
Vanacore is the lead mammography technologist in the Radiology Department. She has worked at the hospital for more than 30 years, and was chosen as December’s Employee of the Month.
“Diane greets patients with a warm smile and a friendly ‘hello’ and they become more at ease,” according to her nominators. “She also has a natural ability to teach. She is patient, thoughtful and engaging. Her strong rapport with physicians enhances the patient and student experience.”
Employees of the Quarter receive a plaque and a letter of commendation, and are eligible to be selected as Employee of the Year.
