TriStar Stonecrest Medical Center Announces 2017 Awards of Distinction




TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center announced its annual HCA Awards of Distinction program recipients during a recent ceremony. The program includes three unique, significant awards: the Frist Humanitarian Awards, the new Excellence in Nursing Awards and the Innovators Award.

“Our annual recognition ceremony name has grown to more completely celebrate team members across all areas of our hospital that are making a substantial impact on the healthcare industry, their related profession, care delivery and our community,” said Lou Caputo, CEO of TriStar StoneCrest.

The TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center 2017 Awards of Distinction recipients by category are: Frist Humanitarian Awards:

Dr. Juris Shibayama, Physician
Frist Award Winner
Dick Brown, Volunteer Frist
Humanitarian Award Winner
Vicki Taylor, Employee Frist
Humanitarian Award Winner
HCA Innovators Award:
Courtney Maynard, Award for
Quality & Patient Safety
Lisa Queen, Award for Service Excellence

“While the awards program name has evolved from the Frist Humanitarian Award Ceremony, I believe the foundation of each award is still based on a simple but powerful reflection from HCA founder Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr.,

‘Good people beget good people.’” Caputo told ceremony attendees. “The HCA Awards of Distinction allow us to recognize additional members of our team who are indeed good people who have a great influence on their colleagues, their patients and their communities.”
