Employers of the Year Selected


Tami Young, Supervisor of Action Employment Services (AES) nominated Bronson Hospital as their Employer of the Year for 2017.  She indicated she has been working on achieving a placement at Bronson Hospital since she first began with AES in 1999.  This year they created a carve-out position as an Environmental Specialist for an individual with developmental disabilities that AES serves utilizing Bronson’s Project Search program. The individual received special training 3 days a week. Young hopes this will be the start of many successful placements.   Please see the link below to story in Bronson Health News about the award.
