AHF honors Beth Yesford with Lifetime Achievement Award
The Association for Healthcare Foodservice has presented Beth Yesford, senior director of support services & facility management at Providence Hospital, with its 2015 AHF Lifetime Achievement Award.
The award is the association’s highest honor, recognizing operator members who best exemplify the leadership and spirit of Angelo Gagliano and Jacques Bloch, the founders of AHF’s legacy organizations.
Yesford has 37 years of experience in the healthcare foodservice industry, with 25 of them at Providence Hospital where she has also held various roles including director, food & nutrition, senior director, food & nutrition & laundry and assistant administrator in charge of support services at Carroll Manor.
“Beth has a great ability to lead by example,” said Jermaine Fox, employment specialist at Providence Hospital. “The first thing I noticed working with her is that she will never ask anybody to do something that she’s not willing to do herself.”
The award was presented at the AHF’s annual conference in Salt Lake City.
