2020 ROSE recipients

As Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network remains focused on COVID-19 and keeping our patients, residents, employees and the community as safe and healthy as possible, we also want to recognize the outstanding work that happens on a regular basis throughout our network.

Shannon Reidnauer, MS, CCC-SLP/L, says the ROSE Program represents an opportunity to increase awareness of various work happening across disciplines and locations, as well as learning how to apply those works of excellence to other parts of GSRN.

“It highlights the best in all of us as we carry out the mission of Good Shepherd,” says Shannon.

A celebratory event will be held in the future to recognize this outstanding group of therapy providers.
