EvergreenHealth is proud to announce the recipients of its Health Heroes award for the second quarter of 2014, a recognition bestowed by EvergreenHealth to commend extraordinary providers, staff, volunteers and clinical teams who perform beyond expectations.

“We are proud to employ so many compassionate individuals who work day and night to provide the highest-quality, safest and most satisfying care at the best value,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte. “These quarterly awards are just one opportunity to recognize and thank the EvergreenHealth providers, staff, volunteers and clinical teams who go above and beyond to provide an exceptional patient experience.”

This quarter’s recipients are recognized for their remarkable skill and compassion, as well as their commitment to the well-being of patients, families and the community.

• Clinical Hero: Felix Trinidad, Hospice Care Center

• Physician Hero: Maia Davis, MD, hospitalist

• Patient Safety Hero: James Colquhoun, MD, quality management

• Non-Clinical Hero: Curtis Vanderflute, environmental services
