Cheyenne Regional Medical Center celebrates Cinco de Mayo with return of their Salsa Competition
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - For the first time since the Covid pandemic, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center (CRMC) held their Salsa Competition.
Hospital representatives said that because Covid cases are continuing to drop locally, it was time to bring back the fun tradition.
“Since those numbers have been a little bit decreased, we have decided to come back with the salsa competition and we just think it has been a great event in the past to bring the staff together and just kind of celebrate Cinco de Mayo and have fun together in the hospital,” said Jared Skagen, Director of Emergency/Trauma and the Patient Experience Commitee Representative.
From spicy to sweet, there were 15 different salsa entries. Everyone was able to sample salsas and cast their votes for their favorites. A handful of judges had to select the top three, which wasn’t an easy task for some.
“It is going to be really, really hard to say which one is the over-all best; they are all so flavorful,” said one of the judges.
However, some salsas stood out among the rest.
In the end, the top three salsa maestros were Teena Gering, Director of Medical Staff Office, the team of Dr. M. Batezini, Oncologist and Dave Jungck, RN, and Letisha Navarro, CNA, for third place.
CRMC said events like the salsa competition have a way of boosting morale around the hospital.
“We are always putting on different events to help celebrate employees and create an environment that is best for our patients,” said Skagen.
