"When Greensboro resident Sandra McFarland, RN, referred her friend for a job with BAYADA Home Health Care, she earned entry into the company’s year-long nurse recruitment contest called Drive it Home.  Last week, an overjoyed McFarland learned her name was drawn as the grand prize winner of the contest, making her the owner of a brand new Ford Focus!

“I screamed so loud when I got the call!” exclaimed McFarland!  “I can’t wait to drive to visit my mom, my sister, and brother in South Carolina to show off the new car!”

McFarland has worked for BAYADA for 13 years, providing nursing care for children with complex medical needs.  “I love being there for these kids,” she said. “I love seeing the smile on their faces when you do something special for them.”

The goal of the Drive it Home contest was to find nurses like McFarland who share the company’s vision of helping children, adults, and seniors live a safe home life with comfort, independence, and dignity.  Anyone in North Carolina, South Carolina, or Georgia who referred a nurse to BAYADA had the chance to be entered into a drawing for the Ford Focus, or to win a $500 cash prize awarded each quarter. 

“I told my friend she should apply to BAYADA because it’s a wonderful company that really cares about their clients,” said McFarland.  “They are nice and friendly, and they also know how to take care of their employees.”

Elizabeth Goad, director of the BAYADA Pediatrics office in Greensboro, was thrilled to learn that a nurse from her team had been chosen to win the car.  “Sandra is hard-working, reliable, and dedicated to her clients,” said Goad.  “She is one of BAYADA’s biggest fans who always participates in office contests and events.  I hope she really enjoys her new car!”

McFarland expressed her appreciation to BAYADA President and Founder Mark Baiada.  “I thank him for everything he does for the clients and employees,” she said. “It takes someone special like him to care about us.”

BAYADA offers a number of benefits, including health insurance, a 401(k) retirement plan, competitive salary, tuition reimbursement, scholarship and career growth opportunities, and reward and recognition programs. Nurses have access to 24-hour clinical support and flexible scheduling, including full-time, part-time, and per diem positions
