Employee Recognition Week

Every fall, leaders of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System honor employees with a special, weeklong celebration. This year, Employee Recognition Week takes place Sept. 18–22. Among the highlights is the Service Awards Celebration, where these employees will be recognized for outstanding job performance:

2006 Edward A. Halle Prize for Service Excellence in Patient Service: Grace Hollins, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Nominated for her willingness to go out of her way to make her patients’ visits a positive experience, Grace Hollins, an associate physical therapist, was described as a self-starter with exceptional clinical judgment and a genuine concern for her colleagues. “Grace has displayed exceptional motivation, dedication and professionalism in attending to the needs of my wife,” one man wrote in to say. “Hopkins,” another declared, “has surely employed an angel.”

2006 HR Presidential Leadership Award: Robin Wantz, Neurosciences

Cited for her ability to adapt to change, successfully lead staff, and build positive team relationships, Robin Wantz, nurse manager on Meyer 9, was described as one who views problems as opportunities.
