Lower Bucks Hospital Employees Honored at Annual Service Awards Event


Bristol, PA (March 30, 2024) – Lower Bucks Hospital is proud to announce their Annual Employee Service Awards, recognizing a total of 680 years of service by dedicated employees who have helped the hospital achieve excellence over the years. This year’s awards honor 44 employees for their outstanding contributions and commitment to providing high-quality care and services.

The Employee Service Awards are an esteemed event that offers a platform to express gratitude towards the exceptional employees who have demonstrated unwavering dedication, professionalism, and commitment to excellence in their work. This year’s theme, “Lower Bucks Employees: Perseverance, “further highlights the importance of recognizing those who have gone above and beyond in their roles.

Commenting on the occasion, Chief Nursing Officer of Lower Bucks Hospital, Renee Stewart, said, “Five through forty years of tenure is a significant milestone that showcases the level of trust and commitment shared between the employee and employer. At Lower Bucks Hospital, we have had the privilege of having employees who have dedicated their best years to our organization, and it is imperative that we recognize and appreciate their unwavering loyalty, dedication, and hard work.”

Kevin Carrion, Director of Human Resources, Lower Bucks Hospital, remarked, “Our Employee Service Awards stands out as my favorite event of the year because it provides a platform to recognize and honor our employees’ dedication. Their tenure speaks volumes about their commitment, hard work, and passion, that truly sets Lower Bucks apart from other hospitals.”

During the event, Stewart delivered a heartfelt speech about Lisa Foran, RN, who celebrated 35 years of dedicated service. In her remarks, Stewart shared how Lisa followed in her mother Judy’s footsteps, and highlighted Lisa’s exceptional qualities that make her a beloved colleague at Lower Bucks Hospital.

Stewart also highlighted Jeannette Lieb, a dedicated RN who has spent 35 years at Lower Bucks Hospital. Stewart praised Janette as the perfect example of an ideal employee that everyone hopes to work with sometime during their career.

She added, “Janette’s journey at Lower Bucks Hospital began as a nurse extern and progressed to become an orthopedic nurse, followed by joining oncology, before eventually finding her home in Med-Surg after passing through the telemetry unit along the way.”

Lower Bucks Hospital has always been an employee-focused and patient-centered organization and the hospital places the well-being of its employees uppermost on its corporate credo. The awards also celebrate the milestone of a tenure that has been rewarding, enriching and epitomizes an employee’s loyalty to the organization.
