Despite a difficult and emotional week following the Boston Marathon attacks, MGHers were resolute in their decision to come together April 22 to celebrate the annual Partners in Excellence (PIE) awards, which honor the extraordinary efforts that MGH employees make here each and every day.
“We briefly considered postponing today’s celebration but ultimately decided that Partners in Excellence is symbolic of what got us all through that very trying week – colleagues who rose to the occasion time and time again: providing the very best in patient care, teaching the medical leaders of tomorrow, researching the cures for the diseases that ail us, and helping the community around us,” said MGH President Peter L. Slavin, MD.
This year a total of 1,688 MGHers were selected as PIE award recipients. The program recognizes employees and teams nominated by their colleagues for outstanding contributions in the categories of quality treatment and service, leadership and innovation, teamwork, operational efficiency and outstanding community contributions.
“We are Partners in Excellence – all of us,” Slavin said. “That’s why we are here today. In my almost 30 years at the MGH, I have never been more proud. Thank you for all that you do for our patients, their families and each other.”
