Seven MCGHealth employees were recently recognized for work that goes above and beyond the span of their positions with the new Golden Pen Awards. Barbara Carter, Loretta Humes, Marjorie Shaw Phillips, Billie Zimmerman, Mari-eta Hobbs, Margaret Kovalchuck and Bertran Pack were awarded engraved golden pens for their accomplishments.
“We want to continue to recognize our many high achievers with this special award for consistently going above and beyond the scope of their job, and for their outstanding performance and dedication,” said Derek Carissimi, MCGHealth Vice President of Human Resources.
The Golden Pen Award honors employees who have demonstrated extraordinary accomplishment and leadership through publication in a professional journal, or through a speaking engagement at a professional conference.
Carter had two protocols published, and presented at the Society of Otolaryngology Head – Neck Nurses, Inc. Humes presented at the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management conference. Phillips was published twice and presented at three conferences or meetings. Zimmerman’s work was accepted to two publications. Hobbs and Kovalchuck presented at the BE Centricity Business National Users’ Conference and Pack presented at the Cerner Health Conference.
“There are so many employees with MCGHealth who are speaking at conferences all over the country and internationally, writing and publishing articles, and doing things that are outside of the realm of their jobs,” said Diane Hodge, Director of Human Resource Communications and Retention Programs.
Nominations for the Golden Pen Award are accepted at any time for published articles or speaking engagements. Employees may nominate themselves or others. For more information, contact Diana Hodge at 706-721-6663 or visit hi.mcg.edu/ intranet/HR/Communicationsand-EmployeeEngagement.
