An Afternoon to Thank Our Employees

default content

A fun-fill afternoon with good food, music, appreciation and prizes

– all to celebrate the great work that is being done by our Compass Health employees.


After many days of beating sun – we welcomed a slight overcast September day to thank our employees at Compass Health;  Bingo, Cake Walk, Word Search, Trivia were all on the agenda.

Eric Carlsen spoke on behalf of the Board of Directors to thank our Compass Health employees for their dedication and commitment to both the agency and to the clients we serve.  “It is the staff and leadership who work tirelessly to serve these individuals which has allowed our agency to grow and rise to meet the needs of our expanding communities – for that and on behalf of the entire Board of Directors, I would like to express our sincere appreciation and thank you all for the excellent work you do,” said Eric Carlsen.

Tom Sebastian, CEO of Compass Health praised staff for reaching to be able to provide for the recent growth in the demand for our services.  “We appreciate all that you do and your dedication to the mission of Compass Health as we expand to meet this demand,” said Tom Sebastian.

Sebastian went on in his statements to explain that Compass Health is experiencing a period of solid growth not only due to the merger with Whatcom Psychiatric & Counseling Services  in July, but also with the increased demand for mental health assessments due to the passage of the Affordable Care Act.  

Tom Sebastian thanked the event committee and said that this was the best employee appreciation event to date.  He said that he was pleased with the atmosphere and the real feeling of accomplishment and commitment that everyone was sharing.
