Nominations Open for the Amy R. Wilson Award for Exemplary Performance

Published: Nov 2, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 2, 2012) — Nominations are open for the inaugural Amy R. Wilson Award for Exemplary Performance at UK HealthCare.

 

The award was established to honor the extraordinary contributions of Amy R. Wilson, who served as the administrative director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology from 1979 until her death from breast cancer in 2011. It will be presented annually to recognize a staff member who exemplifies UK HealthCare's core values and the professional qualities and compassionate service that characterized Wilson's career.

 

“Amy dedicated her professional life to providing support and guidance to many women receiving cancer treatment at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center," said Dr. John van Nagell, Jr., professor and director of the UK Division of Gynecologic Oncology. "She was a tremendous advocate for UK Healthcare.”

 

Nominees for the award should demonstrate diligence, professionalism, compassion for patients, collegiality and teamwork, innovation in achieving goals, a service focus and a commitment to excellence. All full-time non-faculty members of the UK HealthCare and UK College of Medicine staff are eligible for nomination.

 

The winner will be selected by a committee of representatives from the UK HealthCare faculty, Leadership Team, Office of Service Excellence and the Division of Gynecologic Oncology. He or she will be celebrated with a public announcement at a leadership ceremony in December, and will receive a plaque and a $500 cash stipend.

 

The nominating period will be open until Friday, Nov. 30. Nominators must be full- or part-time faculty or full-time staff at UK HealthCare or the UK College of Medicine, and must complete the two-page nomination form and submit it to Amberlee Nickell in the Office of Service Excellence by the Nov. 30 deadline.

 

Completed nomination forms may be submitted via e-mail to amberlee.nickell@uky.edu. Forms may also be dropped off in person or through campus mail to UK Chandler Hospital, Pavilion H, Room C101.

 

For more information about the Amy R. Wilson award, contact Amberlee Nickell at (859) 323-2072.
