Awards and Accolades

Above and Beyond Heroes

The Above and Beyond Award recognizes HUP employees who have a meaningful and positive impact on patients and colleagues by consistently acting with respect, leading by example, and inspiring others around them to emulate their impeccable professionalism in our work environment. Five HUP employees were chosen as award recipients for the Fall 2016 quarter:

The patient was feeling ready to give up breast pumping, was feeling depressed about her milk production and was very disheartened until she met Shaleeta who stepped in right at a crucial moment and gave her the inspiration she needed to not give up. She even took the time to create a pumping schedule for the patient.
