2020 Practice Staff Superstar Award
In the Fall of 2020, the Practice Staff Superstar Awards were presented virtually. The BGMS Board started discussing possible candidates in 2019 and by the time we got back on our feet after the pandemic hit in summer 2020, we had two candidates for the inaugural 2020 awards. Congratulations again to Jana Gilbert, Clinic Coordinator of Chico Eye Center, and to Lorretta Sampson, Operations Manager at Paradise Medical Group. Jana and Lorretta were nominated because of their ability to go above and beyond in leading their teams and providing excellent care for patients.
Lorretta was noted for her excellent work during and after the Camp Fire as PMG relocated from Paradise to Chico within a very short amount of time. Patients were able to continue their care almost seamlessly. PMG Pediatrics is now based in Chico and PMG Adult Medicine returned to Paradise in 2019. Jana, too, was noted for keeping their clinic operating smoothly through the Camp Fire. During the pandemic, Jana’s superstar shown brighter as she found ways to keep Chico Eye Center running smoothly.
