Each year, the Pennsylvania Society for Health Facility Engineering chooses a health facility or biomedical engineer to receive the Donald M. Sauerman Award for outstanding contributions to the field. This year’s winner is Chuck Aitken, an assistant executive hospital director at HUP and director of Physical Plant.
Aitken, who has worked at HUP for more than 20 years, also received the Maryellen Reilly Leadership Award, earlier this year.
“The key to maintaining a successful facilities environment is having good people work for you, employees who are as dedicated and committed to HUP as I am,” Aitken said. “No leaders can be successful without great people supporting them. They share my passion."
