Beth Collien Receives First Department of Urology "Employee of the Quarter" Award
We would like to extend our congratulations to Beth Collien, Senior Medical Technologist in the Department of Urology for being honored with the first Employee of the Quarter award. The Department of Urology recently established a new employee recognition program to recognize extraordinary contributions of staff working in urology clinics, research programs, academic programs and administration. Dr. Stephen Nakada presented the inaugural award for January-March 2011 to Beth at the UWHC Urology Clinic monthly staff meeting. Beth has been with UWHC for 38 years and is currently responsible for all urology lab operations including quality assurance and survey readiness. She recently identified reporting errors from a national reference lab and helped them correct their problem. Beth freely shares her positive energy and knowledge with her co-workers while continuing to learn and improve her own skills. The Department of Urology is grateful for the dedication and excellence she brings to their clinical and educational missions.
