RANSON, W.Va. – Rachel Sigel-Domenico, a nurse practitioner in the emergency department, was recently named WVU Medicine Jefferson Medical Center’s Quality Service Award winner for the first quarter 2017.

Sigel-Domenico was nominated by the daughter of a patient who stated, “I thank Rachel for her care and concern when my mom came into the ER with difficulty breathing. She rushed my mom to have tests and found a blood clot on her lung. She is certainly an angel who saved my mom’s life.”

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 WVU Medicine Eastern Panhandle 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.
