Quality Employees

Careers-Prospective-Commitement

 

An award-winning hospital depends on exceptional employees. Judging by the many diverse honors presented to Crouse Hospital over the past several years, it's evident our employees live our mission, vision and values each and every day, no matter in which area of the hospital they work. They go the extra mile for our patients, their families, physicians and fellow staff members. They are the heart and soul of our organization.


At Crouse, recognition of staff excellence does not occur just a few times a year; it's an ongoing emphasis - an integral component of our overall culture. 


"We're proud of our accomplishments," says Crouse Hospital President and CEO Paul Kronenberg, MD, "but more so of our talented and dedicated employees."

Kingson Award

This annual cash prize is made possible by the family and friends of former Crouse Hospital patient Joan Fernbach Kingson, a nurse and educator who passed away in 2001. Syracuse University professor Eric Kingson was her husband and is the author of Lessons from Joan, Living and Loving with Cancer, a Husband's Story.


Service or technical workers at the hospital are nominated by their peers and then selected by a committee for their involvement in the patient care process that gives vivid expression to the values of care that the late Mrs. Kingson was committed to in her work with children and families. Those values include treating each patient as an individual; respecting the social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical needs of others; and welcoming families, especially the young, into the caring process.
