The Power of a Simple, "Thank You"
A Simple recipe for recognition
- Thank the individual by name
- State what they did to earn the recognition
- Explain how you felt about their behavior
- State how the behavior added value to Virginia Mason Memorial
- Thank them again by name
Any Virginia Mason Memorial staff member or volunteer can be nominated! Nominations are voted on by members of the My Impact committee.
Awardees receive a HealthCare Hero t-shirt, and have their picture taken for the HealthCare Hero recognition board at brief congratulatory celebration in their department.
