Cassie Houf-Seagraves is Employee of the Month

Posted on: December 7, 2017

Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Cassie Houf-Seagraves, a licensed clinical social worker. She works in the Social Services department and has been a Passavant employee four years. A grateful co-worker nominated Cassie for the honor. “We recently had a patient who was defiant and confused and had mental and physical complications. The patient was no longer able to care for herself and had to be sent to a nursing home. Cassie found a nursing home quickly and could have been satisfied with the task being completed. Instead, Cassie continued to work with Case Management to look for nursing homes to make sure all of the patient’s physical, mental health and communication needs were met. Cassie helped make arrangements for the patient’s belongings to get to the nursing home, and even made sure the patient’s cat would receive care. When it was time to go to the nursing home, the patient was upset and confused, refusing to go. Cassie went to the patient for a heart-to-heart conversation. Cassie was able to relieve the patient of her fears and make her feel important and supported.” As a social worker, Cassie’s responsibilities include identifying, addressing and resolving socially complex situations with patients, coordinating care with patient families, providing resources, advocating for patients and community members and providing crisis intervention and supportive counseling. “Passavant works endlessly to continue to improve and offer top notch services in a rural community,” said Cassie. “Employees, patients and community members are beyond fortunate that Passavant is part of a health system that opens leading doors to this area and never ceases to work to improve the health of the people and communities it serves.” Cassie and her husband, Michael, reside in Jacksonville with their son, Landon. The Employee of the Month at Passavant receives eight hours off with pay, an Employee of the Month plaque, a close parking space for one month, gift cards for the Cafeteria and Gift Shop, a movie gift card, pen and pencil set, picnic blanket, flashlight/tool kit, Mason jar cup, umbrella, small cooler, lunch sack, drawstring tote, water bottle, notepad, flashlight key ring, coffee mug, and cup.
