PUTNAM --- Wilbert Harris, housekeeper for Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH), has been named employee of the month for July by DKH.

Harris began working at DKH in July 2015 after retiring from his own commercial cleaning business. Prior to that, Harris volunteered as a painter pressman for The Hartford Times and was a subcontractor for several carpet and upholstery cleaning companies. In his role as a housekeeper, Harris is responsible for cleaning and maintaining sanitary, orderly and attractive conditions in spaces occupied by patients, staff, and visitors at the Hospital.

Harris grew up in the Hartford County area before moving to northeastern Connecticut in 1998. He lives in Thompson with his life partner, Linda. Harris is a full time caretaker for Linda, and on a personal note he shared, “My partner and I have been patients on several occasions at Day Kimball Hospital. I am thankful to DKH for saving Linda’s life a couple of times.”

In his spare time, Harris volunteers in the community to help those in need. When not working or volunteering, Harris enjoys being outdoors and can often be found saltwater fishing or hiking. He has also proud to have raised German Shepherds for over 40 years.
