Gold Star Award Winners – Spring 2024

We’re delighted to recognize the kindness and professionalism of two colleagues:

As shared by Dr. Kellie Whitehill “Rada Dubrovnik is one of the housekeepers in the OR at VGH and is the main staff for the surgical day care OR at VGH.  Rada is beloved by all of the surgical staff. She always has a smile and a kind word for you when you start your day and when you end your day. Her work ethic is something to be admired and emulated. She never seems tired and she works effortlessly to help our OR days run smoothly. She is an integral member of the surgical family and is very well loved.”

Dr. Alicia Power nominated Dr. Morgan Evans: “I referred something to him that I did not know what to do with and although he couldn’t help, he researched who could and gave me a suggestion!”

Many thanks to Dr. Whitehill and Dr. Power for for their thoughtful nominations, and to Rada and Dr. Evans for their collegiality and professionalism!  We are lucky to have all of you as part of our community!
