Congratulations to our newest winner of the Staff Recognition Award - Thuy Vu!

The award winner is an employee who goes above and beyond in displaying exceptional customer service, team work, performance and innovation.

Thuy is a team member in the Hematology Division at the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine. She is known as a hard working employee who is very polite and helps other staff with processing specimens, calling floors for problem samples and critical values. She is also great under pressure and does not get flustered when she is multitasking. Thuy works on Saturdays so that the division does not have problems with bone assistance.
