Greenebaum Compassion Awardees 2019

Congratulations to Rachael Tavik, BSN, RN, SCN1, and Helen Ploussiou, MSW, LMSW, who received the 2019 Greenebaum Compassion Award in recognition of the extraordinary, compassionate care they provide to our patients. Cancer Center Director Dr. Kevin Cullen presented the award at the All Hands Meeting on December 16, 2019 to Rachael and Helen on behalf of the Greenebaum family.

Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum established the award in 2007 to commend staff members who go above and beyond their normal duties to provide not only excellent patient care, but also compassion, hope and dignity at a time when patients are so vulnerable.

Not All Champions Wear Gold Medals

They wear scrubs, lab coats, business suits, gowns that open at the back, and sweatpants for long nights by a loved one's bedside. They are the faces of hope, dedication and innovation. You will notice some of our own UMGCCC champions in a video produced by the UMMS Foundation.
