The event was hosted by Mayo Senior Football Manager James Horan and the awards were presented by Saolta CEO Tony Canavan and Chief Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Jean Kelly.

Catherine Donohoe, General Manager, Mayo University Hospital said, “I am delighted that Kay Moran, who works in our Human Resources Department, was awarded the ‘Outstanding Employee Award’. Kay is hugely dedicated and compassionate in her dealings with others. She is reliable and willing to go beyond what is expected in her role. Her knowledge and expertise is a real asset to the hospital and she is a deserved winner.”

In addition to winning the ‘Outstanding Employee Award’, the Colorectal Team in the Surgical Department was shortlisted for the ‘Quality Improvement and Patient Experience Award’ for their work on Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) for colorectal patients.
