March 1, 2015 - University Health System had their annual staff recognition awards banquet on February 26 at the Omni Hotel. Dinner, a western theme, and live music set the mood. There were 12 areas of recognition each with 4 nominees. One of the 4 nominees for Volunteer of the Year was one of our therapy teams, Beverly Oakes and Junior, aka "meow" (named by hospital staff). There was very stiff competition; however, Bev and Junior were selected as the 2014 Volunteer of the Year. Bev gave a very nice thank you speech. Congratulations to both!! more...
