Wentworth-Douglass Staff Awarded the Organization’s Highest Honor

For the first time in the organization’s history, the Wentworth-Douglass President’s Award was awarded to the hospital’s entire staff Wednesday, in recognition of their commitment throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“You each answered the call when critically ill patients flooded our Critical Care Unit. When their families could not be at their bedsides due to the virus, you were their advocates, their caregivers, their nutritionists, their rehabilitators, and so much more. All of this while you were working to keep yourselves and your own families safe,” said President & CEO Jeffrey Hughes, during a virtual ceremony announcing the 2021 recipients.

The President’s Award, which is the organization’s highest honor, has been awarded to an individual employee annually since 2000. The most recent winner was Stacey Savage in 2020, the hospital’s former Clinical Director of Emergency Nursing.

The nominees were nurse Elisha Belliveau, Arielle Camillo, Dr. Dmytro Havaleshko, Hilary Niesuchouski, Donna Smith, Dr. Henry Sonneborn, and Martha Wassell. Each received a cash reward and a commemorative bowl.

“You are all rock stars and I am so proud to be part of this amazing healthcare organization,” he said.
