Three Jefferson Health NJ Associates Honored with Outstanding Employer Recognition Awards
On November 30 at the 13th annual Dubrow Vocational Celebration Breakfast, three Jefferson Health - New Jersey associates, Helaina Sohn, Anthony Goodson and Adham Baghdadi were honored with the Samost Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JFCS) of Southern New Jersey’s Outstanding Employer Recognition Award.
More than 250 people were in attendance, in celebration of the empowerment, independence and potential of disabled individuals, and in recognition of the JFCS Special Needs Supported Employment Program.
Sohn (file clerk), Goodson (Patient Safety Observer) and Baghdadi (file clerk) respectively work at the main office of Jefferson Health Primary & Specialty Care in Voorhees, the Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital Emergency Department, and Cooper Landing Road Primary Care (Jefferson Medical Group).
Prior to these positions, Sohn, Goodson and Baghdadi were Jefferson Health - New Jersey interns through Project SEARCH — a one-year, school-to-work program that helps young adults with developmental disabilities make successful transitions from high school to competitive employment and productive adult lives.
Sohn’s primary responsibility is rerouting patient referrals. She plans on studying at Rowan College at Burlington County, and hopes to one day work as an editor at a publishing house.
As Patient Safety Observer, Goodson not only stocks supplies, but he helps care for patients by talking to them. In the future, he hopes to get married and support his family.
Baghdadi’s job involves photocopying documents, preparing files for upcoming appointments and scanning patient charts. He is currently taking general education college courses and intends to study medical coding.
The Vocational Celebration Breakfast was sponsored by the Dubrow and Gelman families in loving memory of Ellen and Ron Dubrow, who both served as vice president of JFCS of Southern New Jersey.
