It is with tremendous sadness that I announce the passing of Sue Harteneck. Anyone on this page knows that Sue was the heart of Zumbrota Health Services, and no matter what we do, there will always be a hole where she stood so humbly. Please keep her family and her second family (our residents) in your prayers today and many days going forward. They will all need it.
Join us in celebrating the life of Sue Harteneck

Zumbrota Health Services
Mill River Addition
Last night, Zumbrota Health Services (ZHS), hosted a legislative open house with Representative Steve Drazkowski and Senator Matt Schmit. ZHS wanted to extend our appreciation for the investments made in nursing homes last legislative session and for making Minnesota seniors and their caregivers living and working in these settings a priority.
Zumbrota Health Services (ZHS) recognizes outstanding employees who have made a significant contribution within the facility each quarter. It also offers an opportunity for all employees to recognize their peers for their exceptional job performance.
There are nine different criteria that a candidate must meet in order to be nominated; a positive attitude, provides service that reflects ZHS’ Core Values, and carries out additional responsibilities beyond their regular job assignment, for example.
Teresa Lawson, Housekeeping Aide, was nominated for the Employee of the Quarter – December, 2015! Teresa provides invaluable input so that the department’s day-to-day tasks run smoothly, maintains a positive attitude, and pays close attention to our resident’s likes and dislikes. Teresa joined ZHS in July of 2015, and while working close to home is fabulous, she says it’s the caring, compassionate and committed co-workers that she enjoys most.
Teresa grew up in Wanamingo, but has lived in Zumbrota for the last 20 years. She and her husband have three children; Benjamin, Peter, and Elizabeth, and two grandchildren; Leila and Braelynn. A few of her hobbies include gardening, going to garage sales, camping, and scrapbooking.
As the Employee of the Quarter, Teresa was presented with a certificate of recognition as well as being recognized in ZHS’ publications, a 10-meal punch card from the facility, an Employee of the Quarter polo shirt, parks in an honorary parking spot during her reign, and is entered into the Employee of the Year drawing that will be held February 26th. The winner of the Employee of the Year will be presented with a weekend get-away at the Fitgers Hotel in Duluth, MN!
Congratulations, Teresa! We are honored that you are a part of our dedicated team of health care professionals!
