Twelve new members were inducted into the Rush Health Systems' "25 Year Club" Thursday.
"It has grown over the years and now it's an event where the retirees come back and celebrate with us as we induct new members into the 25 Year Club," said assistant administrator, Ken Purvis. "It's a big event for our family at Rush."
"This is a very special day for me, a very special day. When I first joined Rush, I can remember being new like any employee that joins an organization. You have a lot of fears and you have a lot of growth that you have to go through and it takes several years to get there," said Wanda Price, one of the inductees.
The club has about 130 members and represents more than 300 years of health care service to the community.
