HaysMed Recognizes Wellness Champion
Hays, Kansas (May, 2016) – HaysMed recently recognized Jill Zordel as its inaugural Wellness Champion Award winner. The Wellness Champion Award celebrates and recognizes a HaysMed Associate who promotes healthy lifestyle choices and engages others in wellness activities.
Criteria for the award includes commitment to healthy lifestyle choices and motivating others to do the same, displaying an energetic passion for promoting health and wellness and striving to build a culture of wellness at HaysMed.
Zordel committed to a healthier lifestyle in 2015 and has lost over 40 pounds. She gave up soda and began eating more fruits and vegetables along with working out. She is up every day at 3:00 am in order to drive to Hays to get her 5 am workout in before going to her job as a Clinical Nurse Assistant at the DeBakey Heart Clinic.
Her habits are inspiring fellow Associates to join her at the gym. She even offers to give them a morning wake up call to join her.
“We have many Associates at HaysMed that are incredible role models for leading a healthy lifestyle,” said Stephanie Howie, Director of CHI. “We hope recognizing their efforts will encourage others to adopt a healthier approach to living.”
Zordel has been an Associate of HaysMed for a year and a half
