FORT SMITH, AR (April 28, 2013) – Sparks Health System is proud to announce one of our Associates is being recognized as an “Associate of the Year” by our parent company, Health Management Associates, Inc.

Tracy Sisco was selected to receive the coveted title on behalf of the company’s Southern and Western Group. In December, Sisco was named “Associate of the Year” by Sparks Health System, an honor which made her eligible for this added system-wide recognition.

Sisco’s nomination touts her positive, helpful attitude and engaging personality. It goes on to say she always does the right thing and makes sure everyone around her steps up their efforts. The nomination letter states Sisco never settles and consistently strives to improve each of her processes and projects.

“I truly enjoy the work I do here at Sparks and the people I work with, especially the physicians,” Sisco said. “Sparks is my home away from home and this family is one of the best!”

Sisco is the Medical Staff Services Credentials Coordinator for Sparks Health System. She has worked at Sparks for nearly 13 years. Her duties include credentialing and ensuring continued maintenance of licenses and insurance for all medical staff providers. She is currently serving as President-Elect of the Arkansas Association of Medical Staff Services and previously served as President of the organization from January 2009 to December 2010.
