Eva Hochberger was awarded the SPIRIT of Excellence Award for the second quarter of 2017 at a presentation at University Town Center (UTC) offices. Eva is the Marketing & Communications Coordinator for MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI). Nominated by Katie Carlin, Director, Research Development, Planning and Communications, the award was presented by Neil Weissman, MD, president of MHRI.

The room was at capacity with colleagues from UTC who came out to celebrate Eva and her contributions to MHRI. She was recognized for her selflessness, overall ingenuity and willingness to always provide support and help to her colleagues. Kate Carlin said, “Eva makes us all better at what we do, and for that, the organization is better because of Eva.” Several associates spoke and highlighted Eva’s ability to light up any room and come to work every day with a positive, fun and creative spirit. She brings new and innovative ideas to the table to make work more efficient and effective.

The SPIRIT Award is given to recognize and reward one associate (management or non-management) each quarter, who excels in Service, Patient First, Integrity, Respect, Innovation, and Teamwork. Nomination submissions for the third quarter of 2017 are due by August 15.
