Hospital and Employee Recognized by Idaho Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Region Five
BLACKFOOT, Idaho --(Business Wire)--
Bingham Memorial Hospital today announced it has been named Idaho
Division of Vocational Rehabilitation's Employer of the Year for Region
Five, alongside recognition of Lisa Devenberg, a Bingham Memorial
Hospital Health Information Coder, as Employee of the Year. The Idaho
Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (IDVR) is an agency of the Idaho
State Office of Education, whose mission is to help those with
disabilities prepare for and achieve employment through career
counseling, training, assessments and evaluations.
Following medical diagnoses that limited Ms. Devenberg's availability to
continue in her career as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Ms.
Devenberg applied for and was subsequently enrolled in the Vocational
Rehabilitation program. Through the program, Ms. Devenberg was able to
prepare for a new career path by returning to school, ultimately earning
an associate's degree in Applied Health Science, and receiving
credentials as a Registered Health Information Technician. Ms. Devenberg
completed her student practicum at Bingham Memorial Hospital two years
ago and was hired ful time upon graduation.
"As an organization, we are proud to work with people like Lisa
Devenberg, who show an unfaltering commitment to the healthcare industry
and those it serves," said Louis Kraml, Chief Executive Officer and
Bingham Memorial Hospital Administrator. "We are pleased to receive this
recognition from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and
congratulate Ms. Devenberg on her employee of the year award. As an
employer, we look for those that demonstrate dedication to superior
patient care in every area of the hospital and we are proud to have Ms.
Devenberg on our team."
Bingham Memorial Hospital's human resources department communicates
opportunities that are available across its different skilled
departments in order to determine possible matches with Vocational
Rehabilitation program candidates. In many cases, once a potential
candidate is identified, the program funds the initial training.
"I'm grateful for the opportunity that the Vocational Rehabilitation
program and Bingham Memorial Hospital provided for me and I'm thrilled
to receive this award," said Ms. Devenberg. "Through the Vocational
Rehabilitation program, I've been able to begin in a new career that I
truly enjoy with an employer that values my work. It has been a
wonderful two years."
Region five includes Pocatello, Preston, Gate City and Blackfoot. To
