The Ohio Committee for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves (ESGR) and the NE Ohio Volunteers recognized Altercare of Wadsworth with the Patriot Award on Friday, July 25, 2014.
The Patriot Award is given to those employers who recognize the benefits of hiring from the Guard and Reserves. These employers provide flexibility to service people who want to continue to serve their country.
Altercare of Wadsworth was chosen as the recipient of this award because of their current employee, Jeremy Schadewald. Jeremy is an STNA (State Tested Nursing Assistant) and is also active in the military. “We at Altercare of Wadsworth worked around Jeremy’s schedule to accommodate his commitment to the military. Reservists and Veterans bring special qualities with them – a strong sense of responsibility, an ability to work as part of a team, a degree of professionalism, strong leadership skills and an ability to multi-task,” stated Jennifer Dillard, Altercare of Wadsworth, Admissions.
