The WOW! Awards, an international service excellence and employee recognition programme, has nominated Bermuda Hospitals Board for two awards at its gala event this year.

BHB has been nominated in the award categories Unsung Hero and Quality Service Provider of the Year.
 
Senior Medical Laboratory Technologist Delmonte Swan was nominated in the Unsung Hero category.
 
This award recognises individuals who have made an incredible impact to customers. Organisers said Mr Swan was chosen as a finalist because of his demonstrated commitment to providing accurate and reliable testing. Mr Swan started at BHB in 1991. Letters commending his dedication and evidencing his unfailing willingness to go beyond his prescribed duties were submitted to BHB’s online employee recognition programme RISE Awards.
 
Organisers of the event said BHB’s ability to turn its vision Exceptional Care, Strong Partnerships, Healthy Community, into reality, resulted in the nomination for Quality Service Provider of the Year.
 
Nominees for this category have demonstrated their ability and willingness to go the extra mile not only for service users but also, staff, suppliers and the wider community.
 
“We are pleased that our staff and the efforts of BHB as team, have received this recognition,” said Ms Symonds.
 
“To be selected from over 20,000 customer nominations internationally, is a testament to the high caliber of care and service we are committed to affording our Bermuda community. We are proud of the nominations.”
 
Delmonte Swan and other BHB representatives will attend the WOW! Awards gala on November 30, in London, England where the winners will be announced.
