Bronson Battle Creek Associate Goes 'Above and Beyond'

BBC Associate Goes ‘Above and Beyond’

A Bronson Battle Creek (BBC) associate was recognized recently for going 'above and beyond' in serving others. Toni Ilkka risk management coordinator received BBC’s Above & Beyond--Outstanding Recognition Award.

The honor is given to those who demonstrate exemplary actions that embrace the organization's mission and values. The Bronson Battle Creek Above & Beyond Award program includes not only BBC employees, but also physicians on the hospital’s medical staff. Employees and physicians are nominated in one of four categories by co-workers, patients, or guests: customer relations, innovation and cost effectiveness, performance/productivity, and enthusiasm/commitment.

Ilkka was honored for her enthusiasm/commitment.

Bronson Battle Creek is a 218-bed hospital that provides full outpatient and inpatient acute care including robotic surgery, diagnostics, and rehabilitation services; 100% all private rooms. It also offers world-class diagnostic capabilities including PET/CT imaging, freestanding ‘open’ and traditional MRI, CT (16- and 64-slice), and 3.0 Tesla MRI. Bronson Battle Creek has been recognized nationally as one of the safest hospitals, and has been a leader in the development of electronic health records as evidenced by multiple honors as one of America’s ‘most wired’ and ‘most wireless’ hospitals. The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons recognizes the Bronson Battle Creek Cancer Care Center as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program, and the only hospital in Michigan to receive the CoC’s Outstanding Achievement Award three times in a row. Specialty services include inpatient behavioral health, the county’s largest accredited sleep center, and a wound-healing center with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. For nine years, Bronson Healthcare has been included on Working Mother magazine’s 100 Best Companies list as a leading family friendly employer.
