WINCHESTER — All of the recipients of the most recent WDMH Commitment Awards have one thing in common: They are all planners, often working behind the scenes to get the job done, according to the local institution that recently honoured the Health Records Department, volunteer Bev Beck and Dr. Wayne Domanko.
You may not meet them when you come to the hospital, but the Health Records Department has an important role to play in your care. They ensure clinicians have timely access to data and records. This data also helps the hospital plan its services and programs. And these health information specialists are very involved in the advancement of the electronic health record, which will ultimately provide a complete snapshot of each patient’s health.
Volunteer Bev Beck definitely knows how to plan. In fact, she has been a central driver for many events hosted by the WDMH Auxiliary, creating new programs and opportunities to raise funds and awareness. Bev works tirelessly and deserves a great deal of thanks from not only theAuxiliary, but the facility she loves to support.
Finally, Dr. Wayne Domanko is a familiar face at WDMH after more than 45 years of service. He has spent countless hours providing excellent care for patients. What people may not know is that he also coordinates WDMH physician continuing education program. He has served as apreceptor for several “generations” of family medicine residents, as well as medical students, nurse practitioner students and others — introducing them to careers in rural medicine.
“Every few months, we shine a light on individuals or teams that demonstrate the values that result in compassionate excellence at WDMH,” says Cholly Boland, CEO. “Congratulations to all of the nominees and recipients.”
