Each year, KVC Wheatland Hospital honors its passionate and committed employees at the annual Wheaties Awards ceremony. This event is a way to recognize the accomplishments of the dedicated individuals who help achieve our mission of enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families in the community.
“The Wheaties are always a lot of fun and staff get to come and enjoy a night celebrating them,” said Program Director Audrey Lindenmeyer. “We’ve done this for five years now, and it’s one thing we all look forward to every year. It’s a great way to honor the important work each person is doing throughout the year and celebrate the wonderful care they give to the children and families we serve.”
