MORRIS – For most of her 27 years as an environmental services associate at Morris Hospital, Linda Kopeshke of Morris has kept the 2 East inpatient unit immaculate.

In recognition of her strong work ethic, high accountability, selflessness and thoughtful and positive attitude, Kopeshke was selected Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers’ Fire Starter of the Month for November.

Cindy Stubler, manager of environmental services at Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers, said Kopeshke is known to reach out to patients who have no visitors or struggle with serious medical conditions, making them feel comfortable and cared for during the time she spends cleaning their room.

Patients find her demeanor “warm and welcoming.”

Kopeshke’s compassion spreads beyond patients. Staff from 2 East said she “makes everyone’s day brighter with her infectious smile and incredibly positive attitude.” They also said Kopeshke is excellent in every way and inspires and motivates the staff of 2 East to work hard and stay positive.
