MARTINSBURG, W.Va. – Damien Rostorfer, C.R.N.A., anesthesia department, was recently named WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center’s Quality Service Award winner for December 2016.

Each month, the hospital’s Service Award Committee selects an employee to receive the Quality Service Award. Rostorfer was nominated by a colleague who stated, “While caring for two 5-year-old patients, Damien was able to connect with both children in a way that made them calm and very comfortable with going to sleep and having surgery. Damien’s friendly personality and professionalism as a CRNA is truly an asset to Berkeley Medical Center and the patients we serve.”

Criteria for selection as a Quality Service Award recipient includes: demonstrating a consistently high level of productivity and quality of work along with a high degree of initiative in performing work responsibilities; displaying exceptional dependability; exhibiting effective relationships with others; displaying a commitment to service and serving the Berkeley Medical Center community; and meeting the criteria for the University Healthcare mission, vision, and values.

Nomination forms for the Quality Service Award are available at locations throughout the Berkeley Medical Center campus. Anyone who witnesses an employee displaying outstanding service is encouraged to complete and submit a nomination form.
