Maria Vlahos

Food & Nutrition Department

Star Performer, Maria Vlahos"If you ever need a hand, Maria will be there before you ask" is how co-workers describe Maria Vlahos, our March Star Performer of the Month.

Maria is a Lead Cafeteria Aide with the Food & Nutrition Department, and has been with the hospital for over 35 years. She is known for her smile and always asking customers, "How can I help you?" When you see Maria, she is usually a blur going in several different directions at once. Co-workers recognize her for her dependability and helping the rest of the team work together.

"Maria is always one step ahead of customers' needs," says Rita Gettings, Cafeteria Supervisor. She says that Maria is known for her incredible dedication to the hospital, and consistently volunteers her time and ideas to better safety procedures in the department, actively serving on the department's Safety Committee.

"We are so lucky to have such a long-term employee with experience and dedication," says Glen Morash, Director of Food and Nutrition. "She has the ‘can-do' attitude that reflects on the great service she gives to our staff, patients, and visitors."

Maria lives in Dracut, and enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephews. She loves to go out to eat and to shop for bargains.

Congratulations, Maria. You're a Star!
