It is usually black and white, you either love surprises or you down right despise them. If you are Linda Weinzetl, a surgery care technician at UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s, you love them. 

In fact, you love them so much you can’t bear the thought of someone missing out on a surprise that could be honoring them.

Weinzetl, who has been with St. Luke’s for over 24 years, is quite familiar with the St. Luke’s Employee of the Month recognition program. This program honors one employee every month for their extraordinary work.   

“I love these surprise celebrations”, exclaimed Weinzetl. “I’m usually the one running room to room making sure everyone comes out to celebrate in case they are the winner. You can’t miss the announcement!”

This time, she was so busy gathering her co-workers that she almost missed out on her own announcement. Weinzetl herself was the honoree for June.

Amy Munchrath, manager of surgery, says she shows that same amount of unconditional support for her patients as she does for her co-workers.

“Linda is such an amazing person. She is a great advocate for St. Luke’s, her teammates and our patients who all love her.”

Nominated by her fellow employees, Weinzetl is described as “helpful, kind, friendly, gracious, knowledgeable, cheerful, compassionate and unforgettable.”

As the St. Luke’s Employee of the Month for June, Weinzetl received a special watch from Greenberg’s Jewelers, her own premium parking space, gift cards to the St. Luke’s Glass Apple Gift Shop, The Parkview Café and a gift certificate to be used at an area restaurant. She will also have the chance to be voted as St. Luke’s Employee of the Year for 2016. That comes with a paid vacation.
