Ketchikan, Alaska - Jessica Clark, Professional in Human Resources Recruiter for Ketchikan General Hospital (KGH), was named Employee of the Month by a committee of her peers. Clark has been an employee of the hospital for 2.5 years.

A certified Professional in Human Resources (PHR), Clark had three years of hospital recruiting experience before coming to KGH and eight years experience working in the employment and training industry, including a position helping ex-prisoners prepare for and find employment opportunities.

Since coming to Ketchikan General Hospital she has established a community recruitment bonus program, inviting the involvement of the entire community in recruiting professionals needed to maintain health care services at a level unusual for a small, remote community. She also spends time with high school students, educating them about the advantages of choosing careers in health care.

"The most rewarding thing about this job," Clark stated, "is that I get to talk to people about things I sincerely believe in -- that Ketchikan and PeaceHealth are the very best places to live and work."

The fellow employee who nominated her said, "She really believes in our facility, taking the values of KGH very seriously, believing in the mission statement as evident in her recruitment style."
