The Lancaster Heart and Vascular Institute (LHVI) Shared Governance Council has identified a strong desire among employees to formally recognize and celebrate all LHVI staff for the great work they do every day. In response, the Staff Engagement and Patient Satisfaction Sub-Council proposed the A.C.E. Award for “Acknowledging Consistent Excellence”. The purpose of the award is to honor staff members for achieving excellence in their area of expertise.
All LHVI employees are potential candidates for the award. Anyone who has contributed to excellent patient care or provided service in an exemplary way can be recognized. Nominations can be made by peers, managers, patients, or family members. Honorees will be recognized as outstanding role models during an award ceremony and celebration in their home department. The ACE award banner will be hung in a designated area in the honoree’s department for three months.
An ACE award nomination can be made anytime on the LG Health or Starnet website. Winners will be selected and honored on a quarterly basis. A committee of LHVI employees representing a variety of roles and disciplines will select the winner based on standard criteria.
The ACE award winner will be recognized as an outstanding role model, exhibiting LG Health’s Every Time Behaviors:
