Pioneer Memorial Hospital Announces Christensen as Employee of the Month for December.


Mark Christensen has been named as the December Employee of the Month for Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services.  Mark has worked in the maintenance department as a maintenance assistant since October of 2016.  In this position, Mark is responsible for maintaining pioneer memorial buildings, adjacent walks and grounds, and keeping the facility in an orderly and functional condition.  Mark’s work doesn’t stop there however.  He is routinely seen providing assistance to staff, visitors and other employees in many different aspects.

Mark went to the University of Minnesota for Horticulture and attended Minnesota State University in Mankato.  Hailing from Albert Lea, MN, Mark now lives in Viborg.  His family include Kelly & Dylan, and sons Cory, Nathan, Steven, and Daniel.

Those who nominated Mark for Employee of the Month described him as a wonderful worker with a positive attitude.  One individual commented, “He shows great kindness as he stops to visit with a resident or visitor in the hall only to tell them good morning and ask how they are feeling today.”  Marks customer service skills are excellent and we are very fortunate to have Mark working as part of Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services.

When not working Mark enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, and hanging around the campfire with his friends and family.  When asked what he thought about receiving this award, Mark stated, “This has been a humbling experience.  I appreciate all my coworkers, residents, and patients that walk through these halls.  Pioneer Memorial Hospital is a great place to work.”
