Health Care Awards
Every day in a multitude of ways, there are individuals working in health care who make a significant difference to the people they serve and to the people they work with. Some of them provide direct care and some support the people and systems that provide that care. All have a passion for excellence and frequently go ‘above and beyond’ to achieve outstanding results. The North Shore Health Care Awards for Outstanding Achievement are designed to recognize and to celebrate these exceptional people.
Lions Gate Hospital Foundation funds three $1,000 awards in three distinct categories:
A health care workplace environment can be significantly enriched by an individual who exemplifies professional competence, a positive “can do” attitude, a willingness to share his or her knowledge and skills generously, and the motivation and commitment to ‘go the extra mile’ for both their colleagues and the people they serve. This award honours those who energize the workplace and who are dedicated not only to their chosen career, but also serve as a role model for those considering a career in health care.
Continuous improvement is key to better health outcomes and to the effective and efficient delivery of service. This award honours staff and physicians who have identified an opportunity for improvement and then acted on it. This could be in the area of clinical research, process redesign, innovative curriculum development and delivery, software development or adaptation, or the creation of a new health care program or service. The intent is to honour those who have had a systemic influence on the care and service we provide not only on the North Shore, but also on the health region as a whole or even on a provincial or national level.
Leadership is a way of being, not a job title. This award honours those who lead by example, either formally or informally. Such an individual earns the trust and respect of colleagues, sees problems as opportunities to think critically and systemically, communicates effectively, endeavours to build strong and inclusive teams, takes responsibility for his/her actions, and recognizes the contributions and talents of others. Leaders are also integral to influencing the culture of a unit or organization and have a positive effect on recruitment and retention.
