Michelle Hazuka, Community Corner Clubhouse Director, has been selected as the recipient of the North Central Health Care Excellence Award. Michelle has successfully led the journey of Community Corner Clubhouse for the past several years to become financially independent. This has required the review of all Clubhouse operations, grant writing and fund raising. Each year to date Clubhouse has met and exceeded their goals and is on track to be financially independent at the end of 2017. As a leader, Michelle is well respected, engaged with staff, and engaged with the clients served. Due to the success of the Clubhouse program, the Clubhouse was able to move to a new location earlier this year at 811 N. 3rd Avenue in Wausau. This location has provided the opportunity to expand services offered and increase Clubhouse membership. Michelle is a leader that continuously looks to improve herself and her leadership abilities and takes feedback very seriously. She regularly engages in self-reflection and is a very self-aware individual.
As a result of Michelle's leadership, the Clubhouse continues to grow and gain community support. Her ability to move the Clubhouse forward makes her an excellent recipient of the Excellence Award. Thank you for your leadership, demonstration of core values and your unwaivering commitment to NCHC, our volunteers and those we serve.
Consistent demonstration of North Central Health Care’s core values is a requirement of receiving the Excellence Award and Michelle embraces all 5 core values: Service Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability & Continuous Improvement. She is a consistent model for all of North Central Health Care's core values.
