Mary Apitz, RN, Recognized As 2017 “Excellence Above All” Award Recipient

During a presentation ceremony held at Lawrence General on May 8, as part of Hospital Week festivities, Mary Apitz, RN, was announced as the 2017 recipient of the Excellence Above All award.

An operating room nurse in the Surgical Services Department, Apitz has held a number of different positions at Lawrence General over the past 32 years – all of which have contributed to her considerable knowledge and expertise.

Described as being professional, kind, compassionate, calm, and always attentive to the needs of others – especially her patients and their families – Mary has earned the love and respect of many across the hospital and serves as a mentor and role model to those who strive to achieve excellence.

During the award ceremony, Apitz was also recognized for her willingness to lend a helping hand wherever and whenever needed, regardless of the time or situation.  “Mary embraces Lawrence General’s values of quality, integrity, compassion, and service and does so with a smile,” noted one colleague in a nomination letter.

Apitz started at Lawrence General as a volunteer, working in several different departments before becoming a Central Supply Aide and then a Operating Room Instrumentation Specialist prior to completing her education and becoming a nurse in the OR.

Established in 1975, the Excellence Above All award is Lawrence General’s highest honor, recognizing a current employee who exhibits outstanding professionalism, positive attitude, high performance, achievement, and exemplary customer service.
