Last week at a special ceremony, Murray Glendining, President and CEO of London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) recognized more than 20 nominees and awarded six individuals with a 2014 President’s Award.
“I am honoured to offer my sincere congratulations to these individuals, each of whom is helping to make a positive difference within our organization and our community,” says Glendining.
Now in its eighth year, the President’s Award Program at LHSC celebrates staff, physicians and volunteers in a number of categories.
The President's Awards for Living Our Core Values recognizes two individuals who consistently demonstrate LHSC’s values of respect, trust and collaboration – one focused on how we work together and the other on how we serve our patients:
The President's Award for Leadership recognizes leaders at LHSC – both formal and informal - who demonstrate leadership capabilities that make a significant difference to the effectiveness of our organization. For the first time there was a tie, and this year two deserving recipients were chosen:
The President’s Award for Innovation recognizes an individual or team who has demonstrated innovation capabilities that have made a significant difference to the effectiveness of the organization. This year’s recipient, Dr. Mandar Jog, is a neurologist in Clinical Neurological Sciences at University Hospital who has worked at LHSC for 16 years. Dr. Jog is described as a true collaborator who works with individuals and departments in new and inventive ways to bring their various expertise to a clinical issue with promising results.
Established to honour the leadership legacy of the late Dr. Murray Girotti, the President’s Award for Physician Leadership annually recognizes a physician who demonstrates the leadership qualities exemplified by Dr. Girotti. This year’s recipient, Dr. Cheril Clarson, is section head of paediatric endocrinology at Children’s Hospital and is described as a dedicated clinician with over 30 years of experience. Dr. Clarson shows deep respect for patients and families while managing a considerable clinical workload, teaching, and significant research studies.
Each winner’s name also now appears on the perpetual plaques honouring award recipients, located in the President’s Gallery at Victoria and University hospitals.
