Matthew F. McNulty Award & Employee of the Year Awards Luncheon

The McNulty Award and Employees of the Year Award Luncheon was held March 7, 2018. Ronald R. Peterson, Former President of Johns Hopkins Health System and Executive Vice President of Johns Hopkins Medicine, was the 19th recipient of this award. Richard O. Davis, PhD, President/CEO, Sibley Memorial Hospital; Jacky Schultz, President/CEO, Suburban Hospital; and Conan Dickson, PhD, JHM Community Division nominated Mr. Peterson to receive this 2017 award based on his extraordinary integrity, service, and accomplishments over the span of his 44 year career. They were honored to be able to nominate their mentor and friend and couldn’t think of anyone who better embodies these principles. Mr. Peterson made patient safety and quality the number one priority and showed great courage in creating a transparent culture that fosters patient safety and clinical excellence. He also personally developed and championed programs to hire and purchase locally with tremendous economic impact to the Mid-Atlantic region.

Employees from participating healthcare facilities received the "Employee of the Year Award." This was the sixth Employee of the Year Event sponsored by the Healthcare Council, recognizing 38 outstanding employees who contributed to extraordinary efforts in creating efficiencies, improving processes and contributing to customer satisfaction.
