Chrystal Winstead, medical lab technician in the Halifax Regional Hospital laboratory, has been named the recipient of the 2013 Betty Fogle Award.

The prestigious award, named in memory of a former Halifax Regional lab manager, honors an employee in the lab who epitomizes the ideals Fogle demanded of herself and her staff.

Fogle is remembered as a professional who strongly believed in patient-centered care, teamwork and maintaining the highest standards both in and out of the workplace. The annual award, presented as part of National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, is considered to be the highest honor achievable by a member of the laboratory staff.

Winstead, who has been working with Halifax Regional for nearly nine years, was nominated for the award by co-workers who described her as an individual who never complains about anything, is knowledgeable and helpful to co-workers and displays kindness to others. She is further described as one who works hard every day, has a positive attitude, works well with others and is a wonderful team player.

Other nominations described her as dependable and efficient in all phases of the job.

In presenting the award, Ed Agricola, lab manager, said, “Chrystal is an excellent choice for this award. People are what make the Halifax lab stand out above others and continue to be a great place to work. In order to get things done you have to have dedicated people possessing special qualities like those of this year’s recipient.”
