USA Health System Information Services Department Hosts Chili Cook-Off for its Employees

The USA Health System Information Services (HSIS) department hosted its third annual department chili cook-off on March 9, 2016. Because the HSIS department is spread across four locations, the event serves as a fun way to encourage employee engagement and interaction.

Contestants in the HSIS department create secret chili recipes, which are then judged by administrators and leaders of USA Health.

Mark Lauteren, chief information officer at USA Health, started the cook-off when he joined USA three years ago. “After the first event I saw how it changed the HSIS department by building team spirit,” he said. “It breaks down walls between different departments within HSIS and improves morale.”

The winner of the Chili Cook-off receives a trophy, "The Golden Ladle." The event was held at the USA Spring Hill Avenue Campus.
