Vaccine Clinic team receive special Champion of Care nomination

To mark the closing of the QCH COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic last month, Dr. Dorota Nowodworski, QCH Deputy Chief of Staff and QCH Vaccine Clinic Physician Lead, made a generous donation to QCH Foundation and nominated everyone involved with the clinic as Champions of Care.

The entire cross-departmental team will be receiving specially designed ‘vaccine-themed’ Champion of Care pins for their hard work and dedication in protecting our community from COVID-19.

“I feel incredibly grateful to have been a part of this clinic. The pandemic has been a terribly difficult period and to be a part of its solution is so meaningful. The amount of effort that went into putting this clinic together was tremendous. From its conception, construction, and execution, it involved many people in front and behind the scenes and I thank everyone for their excellent care and dedication to make this clinic flow. A big thank you to the Administrative staff, the builders, Registration staff, Environmental Services, Communications, Pharmacy, Occupational Health, Human Resources, Logistics, nursing, and physicians. Special thanks to those that came out of retirement to serve the community in a time of crisis. I designed a special Champion of Care pin as a reminder to everyone who participated that they have made a significant contribution in protecting the community through the prevention of this disease.” Dr. Dorota Nowodworski, QCH Deputy Chief of Staff and QCH Vaccine Clinic Physician Lead

In recognition of Dr. Nowodworski’s remarkable leadership of the QCH COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, Shannon Gorman, QCH Foundation President & CEO, also presented Dr. Nowodworski with a Champion of Care pin.

Congratulations to TEAM VACCINE for your amazing work this year in keeping our community safe. You truly are all champions!
