Announcing this Quarter’s NeuroRestorative Heroes

NeuroRestorative Heroes is an employee recognition program through which we celebrate employees whose actions make them a hero to those we serve or their colleagues.

At NeuroRestorative, we are proud to have an amazing team of employees working tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of the individuals we serve with brain and spinal cord injuries and other neurological challenges. From clinicians to direct care workers to administrative support staff, we strive to ensure all our employees feel valued, supported and recognized for the important work that they do. That is why we created NeuroRestorative Heroes, an employee recognition program designed to celebrate employees whose actions make them a hero to those we serve or their colleagues.

Each quarter, we recognize one NeuroRestorative Hero from different NeuroRestorative programs. NeuroRestorative Heroes is open to all NeuroRestorative employees, and co-workers, supervisors, participants and other community members are encouraged to submit nominations. This quarter, we are proud to recognize staff members who are not just dedicated employees, but true advocates for the individuals we serve.

“The NeuroRestorative Heroes program is a great way to recognize and thank our valued employees” said Bill Duffy, NeuroRestorative President. “On behalf of everyone at NeuroRestorative, I want to thank all of our passionate and dedicated employees and congratulate this quarter’s NeuroRestorative Heroes.”
