Debbie DeMarco, of the Nutritional Services Department at Canonsburg General Hospital, was awarded the 2011 Tradition of Caring Award in October.
This award recognizes an employee that exemplifies the tradition of caring expected by hospital patients, physicians, fellow staff members and the community.
“Ms. DeMarco has earned the respect of her coworkers and continually demonstrates pride in herself, her career and the hospital,” said Interim President/CEO of Canonsburg General Hospital Terry Wiltrout. “Debbie’s coworkers have recognized that she tries each day to make someone else’s day brighter.”
The Tradition of Caring Award is given to a person that demonstrates outstanding job knowledge, performance and communications skills, which the hospital said DeMarco exhibits on a daily basis.
The award process begins with fellow employees and supervisors nominating a coworker for the award.
