BWFH employees honored with Pillars of Excellence Awards

At Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital’s 2021 Pillars of Excellence Award ceremony, held virtually again this year, those staff members who go above and beyond were honored for their commitment to our patients, their families and each other. This year, nine individuals and two teams from BWFH received Pillars of Excellence Awards.

Nominated by their colleagues, Pillars of Excellence Award winners are recognized for the significant contributions they make in one of six categories:

  • Commitment to an Exceptional Patient Experience 
  • Optimizing Collaboration 
  • Enhancing Efficiency 
  • Advancing Innovation & Progress 
  • Fostering Community 
  • Integrating Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

During the prerecorded award ceremony, officiated by Executive Director of Human Resources Laura Barnett, President David O. McCready praised this year’s winners. “Your calling to care for every patient who comes through our hospital doors is inspiring to me and your colleagues. The way that teams have come together, even though staffing has been far from ideal, has made me so appreciative of the grace you have displayed in stepping into roles that weren’t always your own. Environmental services staff, nurses, physicians, techs, pharmacists, transporters, cafeteria and administrative staff—all of you, in nearly every department in the hospital, have thoughtfully reimagined how we do our work in countless ways over the past two years,” he said.
