METZ SUPPORT SERVICES EVS/FACILITIES VP AWARD TO MIKE HEILMAN 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We know that Mike Heilman, Director of Maintenance for the Campus, is unfailingly hospitable, respectful, compassionate and completely engaged with the Campus and his responsibilities on the Campus.

We know also that Mike is persnickety about details, and keeps meticulous records that stand up to scrutiny by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the Department of Welfare and the Department of Labor and Industry.  His attention to detail is because resident welfare is his highest priority.  Mike has high standards and holds his employees to the same standards.  He always puts the interests of the Campus ahead of his own interests and needs.

At a corporate meeting last week at Metz Corporation (the Jewish Home Campus’ contractor for Environmental Services and Housekeeping) headquarters in Dallas, PA, Mike was recognized with the Metz Support Services (Environmental Services/Facilities) Vice President’s Award for the same attributes that we see in his day-to-day interactions with staff, residents, family members and visitors.

Mike’s District Supervisor reports that selecting Mike for the award was “an easy choice” because when he visits the Campus,  he can see what Mike accomplishes.

If you don’t know how to operate a fire extinguisher, just ask Mike to show you. In addition to his many other responsibilities, Mike is the Campus Life Safety manager, and he makes a real fire that his “students” have to put out with a big, heavy red extinguisher like the one he is certifying in the photo above.

Cathy K – a  happy daughter – posted a lovely comment on Facebook about her mom’s stay at the Jewish Home, and we are happy to share her kind words with you.

To my prayer warriors: thank you! My mom is home, settled in, getting around well with a walker.  She went through a very difficult surgery and then came to the Jewish Home for rehab.  Your therapy program is excellent! I am very happy at how far she has come.  She has more therapy ahead which will certainly help her to improve even more.  Thank you for explaining Mom’s surgery and therapy to me – you helped me understand what to expect. 

I heartily recommend the Jewish Home to anyone looking for a rehab facility for an elderly relative !

Have you tried the Campus Café?

The Gift Shop and Library Lounge in the Home have been transformed into the Campus Café where visitors, staff and residents can grab a sandwich, soup, and salad from the salad bar and a wide variety of beverages and desserts. There are daily “specials” and “soup and sandwich” offerings, all reasonably priced.

All food in the Café is Glatt Kosher meat and parve, under the strict Rabbinical supervision of Rabbi Dr. Chaim Schertz, who has already lunched in the Café and who pronounced his meal “delicious.”  No dairy is served in the Café.

The Campus Café is open 7AM – 7PM Mondays through Thursdays. On Fridays, it’s open 8AM – 3 PM.  The Café closes for Shabbat and some holidays, and reopens on Sundays from 11:30 AM – 7PM.

You can call 717.561.3100 to hear our Executive Chef announce the daily specials, or you can just come and see for yourself what a fine addition the Campus Café is – and ENJOY!

Soon, we will offer our delicious Jewish-Home-made soups by the quart.  We are still working out the details.  Keep an eye on this page to learn when this happens.
