Congratulations to the February 2024 Employee Recognition award winner!!

Mrs. Groom is the Office Manager at Western Mental Health Center, but she has been so much more to the staff and recipients during her 20 year tenure with JBS Mental Health Authority. 

During the past year since our building flooded, she has done everything and anything to get the building back in order, while keeping the clinic running smoothly. She is the glue that keeps WMHC running.”

Not only did she manage the transition of staff to new working locations with needed equipment, she oversaw the disposal of ruined furniture, arranged storage of viable office furniture and supplies, and arranged for clinic phone lines to be routed to outplaced staff. After the resignation of a clerical staff member, Wanda took on the additional responsibility of managing the schedules of the psychiatrist and nurse practitioner. Throughout the past year, she has continually transported supplies to outplaced clinical staff, monitored the construction process – even making evening and weekend visits to the clinic as needed, and she now will be coordinating the upcoming move back to the clinic building. Wanda truly is a shining star!!

Thank you Wanda for your tremendous work and commitment to JBS staff and recipients.
