Tribute to George Achorn, Dedicated WellOne Employee

July 6th, 2012

On June 19, 2012, friends, family and employees gathered at WellOne’s Pascoag offices for the George Achorn Patient Care Suite Dedication Ceremony. The event was held to recognize the late George Achorn who served as WellOne’s Facilities Manager from 1992 until 2012. The proceedings included a multimedia presentation highlighting George’s service and many accomplishments at WellOne; reflections offered by Peter Bancroft, WellOne President and CEO; and the unveiling of a plaque in George’s honor.

During his remarks, Peter noted that the exam room suite, which was dedicated to George by a vote of the WellOne Board of Directors, was constructed by George and is one of only many examples of George’s contributions to the organization over the years. Said Bancroft, “George had a true love for the organization and always exhibited pride in the organization’s accomplishments and service to the local community. There is not likely a single surface in the Pascoag health center that was not touched at some point or another by George’s paint brush or carpenter’s hammer. His legacy serves to remind us that every employee is an essential contributor to the fulfillment of WellOne’s mission, whether he or she is a doctor, dentist, housekeeper, bookkeeper or facilities manager. This event allows us to recognize and celebrate loyalty, service, commitment, selflessness, volunteerism and community.”



George’s wife, Avis and his son, George Junior, unveiled the plaque at the event’s conclusion.
