McCready Foundation Building a Healthy Community One Person at a Time


What's New!


Jill Sterling, LPN is the first recipient of McCready’s PEARL recognition program. PEARLS stands for ‘Promoting Excellence And Recognizing Legendary Service’. Sterling was nominated for aiding another department on a very busy day while maintaining her regular workload. On another day, she overheard someone in the waiting room asking for a water fountain. Without hesitation, she got a cup of water and gave it to the woman. “It was such a small thing, but very thoughtful” stated the grateful nominee.

Sterling works in the Outpatient Center and has been an employee for 42 years.

Thirteen other associates were nominated for the award: Lula Ames, Debbie Brophy, Amanda Hill, Debbie Landon, Jessica Mason, Martha Ortiz, Jill Rayfield, Barbara Rock, Marshallann Taylor, Lawann Tilghman, Lisa Tyler, Kristen Ward, and Michael White, Jr.

The PEARLS program began this fall to recognize employees and volunteers. Any family member, patient, resident, or associate can complete a PEARLS card during their visit to share their compliments and suggestions and place them in the locked comment boxes located throughout the campus.

For more information on the PEARLS program contact Community Relations at 410-968-9225.
