MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Pam Gesford, RN, was named City Hospital’s Quality Service Award winner for May.

Each month, the hospital’s Service Award Committee selects an employee to receive the Quality Service Award. Gesford, an outpatient diabetes nurse educator, was nominated for assisting a co-worker in need of gestational diabetes education that was not covered by insurance.

“Pam has always given her best to whatever role she has served since joining City Hospital in 1980,” a co-worker stated on the nomination form. “She is well-known in this community for the many acts of kindness and generosity she shares, as well as her amazing knowledge of diabetes.”

Criteria for selection as a Quality Service Award recipient includes demonstrating a consistently high level of productivity and quality of work along with a high degree of initiative in performing work responsibilities; displaying exceptional dependability; exhibiting effective relationships with others; displaying a commitment to service and serving the City Hospital community; and meeting the criteria for the West Virginia University Hospitals-East mission, vision and values.
