We need your input!

Our goal is to continue to make Johnston Health a great place to work, so we need your feedback! This can include input on employee-related activities, events and programs; any new initiatives you’d like to recommend; any input on what might not be working so well; or constructive criticism. If you do submit a complaint, you must recommend a solution.

Talk with one of the council members about your thoughts and they will take it back to the group. You may also email feedback to the captains of CORE, David Richards at or Kristin Tucker at
