Being recognized by one’s peers is one of the most honoured achievements a person can receive.
Each year we present health care professionals with peer-nominated Awards of Excellence as one of the many ways we acknowledge exemplary clinical work by individual health professionals, physicians and clinical teams. Because nominations come directly from colleagues, these awards feel extra special and this year an unprecedented 108 staff received nominations.
Last year, we revamped our recognition program to make it more inclusive of our clinical teams and to highlight the collaborative relationships and partnerships that exist between our clinical teams. This combined recognition is celebrated in addition to the individual professional practices.
I, along with members of Osler’s Senior Leadership Team, were honoured last week to present the awards in ceremonies at Brampton Civic and Etobicoke General, with a live telecast at Peel Memorial, to ensure our nominees and winners are able to celebrate these accomplishments with their colleagues. The enthusiasm for our recognition program speaks to the amazing work that takes place among our teams at Osler.
Osler staff received Awards of Excellence in the following categories:
- Patient Experience and Compassionate Caring
- Clinical Leadership
- Early Career
- Interprofessional Team
- Clinical Services Management
- National Bank Bursary Award for Clinical Practice
- Geni Sobol-Baran Education Fund for Nursing
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners!
