RANSON, W.VA. – Daniel Woodruff, surveillance and communications specialist, was recently named WVU Medicine Jefferson Medical Center’s Quality Service Award winner for the second quarter 2016.

Woodruff was recognized for his persistence in helping the mother of a pediatric patient get her child’s prescriptions filled. The mother was at a local pharmacy when she realized she had left the prescriptions at the hospital. After many phone calls, Woodruff was able to connect the mother with a physician so that her child’s prescriptions could be filled. She was very appreciative.

Each quarter, the hospital’s Service Award Committee selects an employee to receive the Quality Service Award. Criteria for selection as a Quality Service Award recipient include: 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 Jefferson 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 Jefferson Medical Center campus. Anyone who witnesses an employee displaying outstanding service is encouraged to complete and submit a nomination form.
