We are pleased to announce that our very own Public Safety Officer Mary Gonzalez has been selected as the recipient of the prestigious Heart of MD Anderson Outstanding Employee Award for the month of May.
The Heart of MD Anderson Outstanding Employee Award singles out employees who consistently embody MD Anderson’s core values of Caring, Integrity and Discovery. The recognition program has evolved and changed names since its inception in 1978, but at its heart, it remains true to its original purpose: to recognize outstanding employees.
PSO Gonzalez was nominated by a member of the MD Anderson nursing staff for consistently being “caring, respectful, pleasant and joyful.” She was also touted for going beyond the offer of suggestions to problems, to helping those she encountered find actual solutions to their problems.
Next month, we will celebrate PSO Gonzalez with a special Heart of MD Anderson Award reception honoring her exemplary work. Along with a special recognition pin and plaque, she will also receive a $1,000 award.
