Congratulations to Samantha Foster who was named Employee Spotlight for the month of January at our Butler facility. Samantha is a housekeeper and has been part of the Medicalodges family for 3 years. She chose to work at our facility because she loves being able to help others in any way possible. 

Besides working she enjoys doing artsy things, spending time with her little boy and husband. Her favorite food is Chinese and her favorite color is orange. You might catch her doing a little back up jazz singing with Cora.
Samantha says the best thing at Medicalodges is the family-like atmosphere.

" Treat people like they want to be treated."
Than you Samantha for all the hard work you do. We appreciate you!
