A home health nurse who recognized Marijcke’s Service Excellence nominated Marijcke for Employee of the Month. The nurse said:
Marijcke has worked with one child for many years I bring to Eastlake for therapy. Her persistence, kindness and passion for her work have brought him to maximum performance. She has shared his tears and laughter as he managed to conquer milestones and miracles in his delayed mobility. She has shared in his accomplishments with pride. Marijcke is knowledgeable, loving and compassionate to his needs and the needs of his family. She has taught me and other home health nurses how to better accommodate his disabilities. Her patience, tender tones and understanding are truly a gift for all of us. We thank Marijcke for her dedication to her profession and for all she does to serve our patients and help her healthcare colleagues.
Marijcke's Department Director added:
