“This award honors an individual who represents the all-around ‘best of the best’ of our hospital,” said Theresa M. Larivee, the executive director of PAH. “It is special because it recognizes one of our own, by our own. As the nation’s first hospital and a member of one of our nation’s leading academic health systems, we strive to stay at the forefront of cutting edge therapies in the delivery of clinical care, research, technology and medical education. Skilled, compassionate and caring employees, like Ron, are the foundation of our excellence in all those areas.”
