You may recall Tina took home the GMG PR Person Of The Year award back in March (Click the blue link for my glowing remarks about Tina)-
Here were her words after learning about the recognition-
I want you to know how honored I am to be selected PR Person of the Year!
You know that GMG is my favorite blog – it is not only entertaining, but informative and educational! I appreciate the many health programs and screenings you post for us.
I feel like I have the best job in City. I work at a wonderful hospital with amazing employees. On Friday,
Cindy Cafasso Donaldson and her assistant, Deb Sacco, who I enjoy working with so much, told me to check GMG and that is when I saw the announcement. What a way to begin your day!
The co-workers I work with are incredible. We have excellent doctors, nurses and support staff.
They are skilled and professional – but in addition, they are compassionate and caring and this is equally
important. I feel honored to call these individuals my co-workers and friends. I wish I could name every department and
every employee as they deserve recognition as well. Addison Gilbert Hospital is striving because of their good care and work.
So it is always a pleasure to share with you programming that our staff are conducting.
My job also allows me to work with so many agencies and other non-profits within the City – I have met so many wonderful people at meetings and working on projects together – this is one of the highlights of my job.
My boss Gerald MacKillop is from Gloucester and of course I told him I was bringing you to my next review! I told him that when he called to congratulate me.
Please know that you made my day by your kindness and this wonderful honor; I am extremely grateful.
I have to go now, I have about four more notices to send you!
Gratefully and in friendship,
