Congratulations to the winners of our first-quarter Special Thanks And Recognition awards, which honor employees whose behaviors align with Yale New Haven Health's Standards of Professional Behavior.

Cecilia Torres, practice supervisor
Northeast Medical Group

52 Beach Road, Suite 102

“Northeast Medical Group has provided me with endless opportunities for personal and professional growth. Our mission is not just with those we serve, but also with those who serve our patients. Our employees. I would not be able to perform all the duties and responsibilities of a practice supervisor, if it was not for the compassion displayed, above and beyond attitude and work ethic that my staff and our clinicians have.

“I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be part of the amazing team of people that is Northeast Medical Group. I am proud to work for an organization that puts patients and people first through its emphasis on patient centered care and treating others with compassion and respect.”

Ronda Berens, value-based team coordinator
Northeast Medical Group
ACO and Value-Based Programs

9 Washington Avenue, Suite 2

“I work with an amazing group of internal and external customers. It's very rewarding to know that my work has positively impacted the lives of patients. Recently, I convinced a patient, overdue for a mammogram, to get a breast screening. The result led to an early detection of breast cancer. Experiences like that make me honored to be a part of the value-based program team at NEMG.”
