Congratulations to the Harriett Lane Clinic staff for receiving a 2014 Childhood Immunization Excellence Award from the Maryland Childhood Immunization Partnership (MCIP).

MCIP is the statewide coalition that is devoted to improving immunization rates among Maryland's children. Each year, MCIP hosts the Maryland Immunization Excellence Awards Luncheon to recognize individuals and businesses that have made extraordinary contributions to improved immunization rates.  Because of your outstanding performance in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program, yours will be among a select number of practices in the state to receive the Childhood Immunization Excellence Award.

 This award honors only 13 practices out of over 800 practices in the state of Maryland with the highest immunization rates among programs who participate for the Vaccine For Children (VFC) program. This truly is a huge honor for our clinic.

 It takes the concerted effort of every clinic team member from the front desk scheduling appointments, the techs triaging patients, the residents ordering vaccines, the nurses administering vaccines, the environmental services staff keeping our clinic clean and so many others to ensure that we vaccinate every child that we can.

I recently won the Clinical Technician Excellence Award 2014. I was very surprised I actually won. It still feel so surreal to me. I was nominated last year but didn't win. I just love what I do and am really passionate when it comes down to working and caring for my patients. I wouldn't want it any other way.

If science made it possible to travel in time, where would you go? Would you transport to a historical moment in our country’s history, go back a few years for a chance to hug a departed loved one or jump forward to 2030 to see what life has in store 16 years from now? Share where and when you would travel in time in the comments section below for today's Hopkins Happenings' Question of the Week.

Mr. Williams demonstrates the epitome of professional competency and customer service skills.  I am a psychiatry intern and was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in February of this year.  As my medical copays began to grow beyond my financial means, I called the EHP office for information and assistance.  Mr. Williams was outstanding.  He immediately addressed my distress with sincerity and compassion and then began to efficiently and effectively evaluate my insurance situation.  He informed be about the House Staff Fund to assist in paying for the copayments, he walked me through the website to find the information needed for the Fund, he organized the information in a spread sheet complete with color coding to identify which bills I was to submit for reimbursement, and he followed up with several emails and phone calls always reassuring me and reminding me that I was not to let this stress me while going through my chemotherapy.  As an example, the following are directly from his emails: "The main thing is that you not concern yourself with the worry and stress over these bills while being treated and during the healing process.","Remember I want to make this an easy process for you so don’t hesitate to contact me any time you have billing or benefits issues. ", " Glad I could help!"  I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Mr. Williams for his expertise, compassion and outstanding customer service during this very challenging time in my training program and life.  His commitment to those insured by EHP is outstanding and deserving of recognition beyond my own personal gratitude.  He is setting the standard for excellent customer service and job competence truly worthy of the Johns Hopkins name.

When Dorothy Brillantes arrived at HCGH in 1993, the hospital had 1,230 employees. Upon her retirement today, April 9, the workforce has increased to more than 1,700 and the diversity of that workforce has almost doubled, with minorities representing more than 46 percent of the staff today.

During her 21 years, Brillantes has made many contributions to the hospital. According to Judy Brown, senior vice president of Outcomes Management, "Dorothy's establishment of an excellent working relationship with the union representatives and union leaders has been one of her most notable accomplishments. She ensured that HR was meeting its customer's expectations for service and she worked closely with departments to develop innovative recruitment programs."

 According to former president, Vic Broccolino, "Dorothy was a real advocate for the employees by insisting that we do things uniformly; therefore ensuring that every person is treated fairly."

At a reception on Monday, Apr. 7, employees from across the organization gathered to thank her for both the systematic improvements that marked her career, but also the numerous of acts of kindness that characterized her service to others throughout the organization.

 Best wishes to Dorothy for a long and fulfilling retirement. Thank you for all you have given to so many at Howard County General Hospital!

All donors have a reason for giving. Perhaps your parents were blood donors and inspired you to carry on their tradition, maybe you knew someone in need and decided to make a life-saving donation, or maybe someone helped you when you needed blood. In honor of National Volunteer Blood Donor month, we invite you to share your stories on this week's Question of the Week of why you give blood.
