Walter Shank, from Maintenance, was named Employee of the Year. He was the Employee of the Month in July 2012. Walt started his career at Taylor Hospital in 1981 as a housekeeper in the Environmental Services department. But soon thereafter, Walt transitioned into the Maintenance department as a Master Boiler Mechanic where he has thrived for his 31 years of service. Walt is “the guy” his coworkers go to when they need help resolving an issue. He always demonstrates exceptional skill and abilities, and his “No problem” attitude is consistent. He truly is a top performer. Walt resides in Prospect Park.

Darlene Luther, nursing supervisor, was chosen as Taylor’s Manager of the Year. She served as Manager of the Quarter from December 2011 through February 2012. Darlene arrived at Taylor Hospital as a staff nurse in 1988. Earning the respect of her peers and Administration, Darlene was promoted to Nurse Director, and currently holds the position of Nursing Supervisor. Her professionalism and flexibility have been of tremendous value over her 24 years of service. Darlene has served as administrative liaison for the Nurse Practice Council and she mentors new nurse supervisors. “Professional, resourceful, knowledgeable and team player” are just a few words that best describe Darlene, who resides in Woodlyn.

In addition, at the service awards celebration, Taylor honored the 2012 Horace Furness Taylor Physician Service Excellence Award recipient, Aymen Alrez, M.D. Dr. Alrez, who is medical director of the Heart Station, has been a member of the Medical and Dental Staff at Taylor Hospital since 2007.
