Ver Steeg received the award based on nominations from her co-workers. The award was presented by Chief Operating Officer Jeff Rotert.

“I am extremely honored to be presented with this award,” Ver Steeg said. “I am grateful to be a part of such a great organization. I have to thank my co-workers, the providers and all staff members for everything they do for this organization. Each day we face challenges and with such an excellent team here, we are able to provide our patients and community with excellent care.”
