You can tell through her care and devotion to the residents just how much they mean to her. She has a smile for everyone!!!

Maletta has been with Azria Health Broadwell for a whopping 29 years; there have been so many changes in all those years and she still manages to come to work with a smile. Regardless of the COVID-19 risks she still shows up to work every day and is even willing to work extra. We are honoring her as this weeks hero! Thank you for all you do, Maletta!

Facility Administrator Quote:

“It is truly remarkable to see the dedication and reliability of a team member for almost 30 years! It is even more remarkable to see the same dedication during this pandemic when dealing with a family member that isn’t doing well. After she has completed job responsibilities she is not done for the day; she is also the main care provider for a loved one at home! It is truly amazing the dedication she provides to the facility and at home.”
