2012 Clinical Excellence Award Winners

Grass Valley Surgery Center’s clinical nurse director, Betsy Herron, RN, was recently awarded a 2012 Clinical Excellence Award. Herron has been with the Grass Valley Surgery Center since 2008 and became the Clinical Nurse Director in 2010 as a result of her leadership skills. The awards recognize clinical team members across United Surgical Partners International Inc. (USPI) facilities for their dedication to patient safety, quality and leadership. The awards were divided into four categories, including culture of safety leader, clinical caregiver, clinical support team member and Every Day Giving Excellence (EDGE) Leader. Five winners from each region were selected for each category based on nominations and testimonials submitted by administrators. The Clinical Excellence Committee received a total of 259 nominations, which they narrowed down to select the 20 winners.

The recipients of these awards each receive a $2,000 credit toward education or a trip of their choice and will be featured in USPI’s 2013 EDGE calendar. In addition to a poster for each facility that features the winners, USPI’s new Clinical Excellence “Wall of Fame” will debut at the corporate office in Addison, Texas, where a professional photograph of each winner will be displayed.
