Victoria Woodyard, medical affairs, Katie Zavora, medical affairs, and JoAnn Wildt, information services, were recognized for going above and beyond to assist a locum tenens physician with transportation on his orientation day. The hospitalist's flight had been rerouted to Huntington, but his rental car was at Yeager.

Woodyard worked diligently to search for assistance in transportation to Charleston. He was able to Uber to medical affairs, but needed a ride to Northgate for his four-hour Cerner training. Zavora used her personal vehicle to get him to the Innovation Center.

Once he had completed training, Wildt drove him to Memorial Hospital to meet with the hospitalist site director.

These employees made sure there were no delays in getting him to his destinations that day and made his transition in a strange town and new hospital as pleasant as possible.

Also recognized was Carolyn Basham, hospitalist program assistant. She was nominated by Dr. Bashar Shaalan: "Carolyn is super. She is a perfectionist, despite that the group has grown at least 300 percent in the last 10 years she is still keeping up and making sure all the requests from travel reimbursement to licensing fee repayment to biweekly paycheck submitting are taken care of day in and day out. She takes care of everything for the hospitalist group."
