Chase Kranzlein has been named AdventHealth Gordon’s latest SonShine Award recipient.
Kranzlein, who is a speech therapist at AdventHealth Gordon, was nominated by a patient’s family member. The family member described Kranzlein as going above and beyond his call of speech therapy to provide exceptional care to their family member while admitted in the hospital.
Kranzlein made sure to keep the patient safe and comfortable during and after their therapy sessions with fresh towels and paying special attention to the patient’s drinking and swallowing. Kranzlein educated the family on what to look for with their family member and how to help them after they returned home. The family described him as someone who genuinely cared about the patient and their family as well, who ensured a safe and easy transition back home.
The SonShine Award was established by AdventHealth Gordon in 2017 to honor the hard work and dedication of its employees. Quarterly awards provide opportunities for patients, visitors and other team members to recognize and reward team members for exceptional accomplishments and demonstrated behaviors that are aligned to the mission, vision and values of AdventHealth Gordon.
The name SonShine was developed by AdventHealth Gordon team members. The recipients of the SonShine award “shine” for the “Son” of God through their warm and comforting care they provide to patients and their fellow employees.
