CEO honors dedicated staff for 2017 accomplishments
Dr. James Gilman hosted the 2017 CEO awards for the Clinical Center Dec. 15 to recognize employees and contractors who by their leadership, achievements and high reliability mindset served as a beacon to their colleagues and brought the hospital closer to achieving its organizational mission and goals.
Approaching his one-year-mark as the first CEO of the Clinical Center, Gilman was excited to honor awardees, 42 individual award recipients and 300 recipients in group awards.
"I love giving out group awards because I believe healthcare is all about teamwork," he said. "What we do together is so much more powerful than any of us can do ourselves."
Awards recognized improving the accuracy of provider assignment to inpatients, improving the performance of code blue and rapid response teams, decreasing critical IT vulnerabilities by more than 90%, and developing a new strategy for informed consent when conducting studies of standard of care interventions in emergency settings, among many other initiatives.
