It is with great sadness that members of the Department of Medical Records announce the passing of beloved friend and colleague, Gayle Ford. Gayle worked at PAH since 1991 and received her 20 year service award just this past June. She was a wonderful friend to all in the department and was known to many employees throughout the hospital, including residents, physicians and vendors. Here are only just a couple of the many lovely remarks from Gayle’s co-workers:
Gayle was a great supervisor, very dedicated to her job and co-workers. She was a hard worker and very focused on her job responsibilities. In difficult situations she always knew what to do and how to solve problems effectively. Gayle had a way of getting connected to the right resources to gain the information needed for us to do our job. She always went above and beyond the call of duty. Gayle will truly be missed here in Medical Records. -- Leslie Powell
The two words that best describe Gayle are efficient and resourceful. Gayle not only mastered the mechanical and intellectual components of her duties, she had an uncanny ability to approach a problem and determine the necessary measures to resolve issues in a timely manner. Good supervisors are the key to efficient operations. They motivate and direct the little guys while synthesizing and making sense of the boss’s wishes. Gayle was the quintessential supervisor. -- Clifford Hill
At the wishes of Gayle’s family, anyone wishing to make a contribution in Gayle’s name may donate directly to the Make a Wish Foundation, 3411 Silverside Rd #104wd, Wilmington, DE 19810.
