Spire Manchester Hospital is delighted to announce the winners of Employee of the Year 2014, Suzanne Egan and Riza Bakir. Suzanne Egan, a bariatric nurse and Riza Bakir, a hospital administrator, were chosen by their colleagues for the two awards which covered both the clinical and non-clinical workforce.
Suzanne who has worked at Spire Manchester for 14 years has been recognised for continually going above and beyond her job role, always providing patients a welcoming service and ensuring they are as comfortable as possible during their time at Spire Manchester.
On receiving the award, Suzanne commented: “It was lovely to receive the award, I felt very privileged to think my work colleagues had nominated me. My relationship with my work colleagues and care I give to my patients is of upmost importance to me.”
Riza has worked with Spire since 2012 and has developed throughout his time at Spire, starting in medical records before progressing to his role of administrator and then to his current role as co-ordinator, to cover a staff member’s maternity leave. Riza has been recognised for his hard-working, nothing-is-too-much attitude and strong work ethic.
Commenting on his achievement, Riza said: “It was quite unexpected news but it felt great and I was very honoured. Some of the comments made about myself were very moving and have given me a boost for 2015 to keep my focus on delivering a great service to our patients as well as internal and external colleagues.”
Chris Chadwick, Hospital Director of Spire Manchester, commented: “We believe strongly that our staff represent and encompass everything Spire Healthcare is about, so rewarding our employees who go above and beyond these expectations is our way of saying thank you.
“Our patients are our number one priority so it is essential that we give them a consistently high level of service. With staff like Suzanne and Riza who have consistently delivered a dedicated and friendly service putting patients at the forefront of their actions at all times, we deliver an outstanding service across the hospital.”
