Inspired by BAYADA Home Health Care’s Founder and President, Mark Baiada, as well in the spirit of giving, BAYADA’s Employee Council Chair, Carol Quinn, and her team of employees raised funds to create a Muppet-themed room at the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey. The council then coordinated a surprise ribbon-cutting ceremony where Mark Baiada and his wife Ann were present, along with the family who was going to stay in the remodeled room.
Five counties in Pennsylvania (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia) rely heavily on its public transit system—Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). Millions of people and many BAYADA’s caregivers depend on the network of buses, trolleys, subways, and regional rail services, so there was great uncertainty when SEPTA went on strike Tuesday, November 1, suspending all transportation.
Pictured during the ribbon cutting ceremony are (from l to r) Officer Joe Kutchmek, BAYADA President and Founder Mark Baiada, NJ Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, Pennsauken Deputy Mayor Jack Killion, Pennsauken Mayor Betsy McBride, and BAYADA Chief Financial and Administrative Officer Tom Sibson.
On June 22, amid the cheers of more than 200 BAYADA Home Health Care employees and invited guests, BAYADA President Mark Baiada, Chief Financial and Administrative Officer Tom Sibson, NJ Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, Pennsauken, NJ Mayor Betsy McBride, and Pennsauken, NJ Deputy Mayor Jack Killion each took hold of a pair of giant scissors and ceremoniously cut the ribbon, officially marking the grand opening of the company’s new global support center.
