AHE And Kimberly-Clark Announce Heart Of Healthcare Award Winners

INDIANAPOLIS and ROSWELL, Ga., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE), of the American Hospital Association (AHA), and Kimberly-Clark today announced the recipients of the second annual Heart of Healthcare Awards, honoring outstanding frontline environmental services technicians who make a difference for patients and residents across all care settings. The award is a component of the Heart of Healthcare campaign developed by AHE and Kimberly-Clark Professional, which recognizes and elevates the critical role that frontline environmental services technicians play in the healthcare environment.

"AHE congratulates all of the Heart of Healthcare honorees for their dedication to patients and hospitals," said Patti Costello, executive director, AHE. "We were thrilled to receive triple the number of nominations for this year's Heart of Healthcare Awards. Engagement in this campaign is a reflection of a growing awareness of and appreciation for the integral role environmental services departments play in supporting a culture of quality outcomes and patient safety satisfaction."

Heart of Healthcare Awards Recipients Nominations were submitted by managers, supervisors, co-workers and members of other in-house departments in hospitals and long-term care facilities. A panel of AHE members reviewed all submissions and selected the winners.  

First Place Awardee: Jean Azor, floor care technician, St. Joseph's Hospitals, Tampa, Fla.

Jean Azor works in St. Joseph's Children's Hospital and in the Cancer Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital. In this role, Azor provides floor care services and ensures that patient rooms and high-touch objects are completely disinfected, helping to improve care for all patients at the hospital. In addition, Azor is vigilant in making sure that all caregivers in the unit follow proper personal protective equipment procedures.

While Azor's job description ends there, his role does not. With a lifelong desire to help others, Azor befriended a young cancer patient and supported him through months of chemotherapy, providing him comfort and distraction when he was sad or sick. Azor was recently recognized by the hospital board and administration as "team member of the month" for providing outstanding service and comfort to patients and was featured in a newspaper column about his friendship with the young patient.
