Associates at the MedStar Health Research Institute at University Town Center gathered to celebrate the 2018 first quarter SPIRIT Award of Excellence recipient, Matt Hoffman. Matt supports the ambulatory and core services as the administrative manager in the office of financial management. The award was presented by Neil Weissman, MD, president of MedStar Health Research Institute.

The nomination was submitted by Becky Montalvo, executive director of MedStar Community Clinical Research Center, Biostatistics & Bioinformatics and the B3 Core Lab, on behalf of several MHRI associates. She spoke at the reception noting that with the extended deadline for submission, she was able to gather notes on Matt’s SPIRIT from 17 different associates and what is “remarkable is that they are from all departments and all levels within the research institute, which highlights Matt’s efforts across the board.”

“Matt is an active member of the team to support numerous investigators in their research work,” said Becky. “You will always find Matt ready & willing to help with whatever needs to be done to move the program forward.”

Several associates noted how responsive Matt is to their requests. “I have always been impressed with how quickly he responds to questions and the amount of detail and thoroughness of his responses,” said one submission comment. Another mentioned that Matt always comes prepared, and frequently provides information before other associates even know they need the information, from billing codes to copies of documentation.

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. Nominations for the second quarter of 2018 are due by May 15, 2018.
