Prince Frederick, MD –  Calvert Heal Calvert Health System names Fanba as Employee of the Year, Rosnage receives “Beacon Award” as top manager
Pharmacist Jean-Marie Fanba was named by Calvert Health System as Employee of the Year. Fanba, who joined CMH more than five years ago, is noted for his positive attitude, his compassion and really taking the time to listen to his patients.  

“Fanba is a consummate professional,” said Susan Dohony, vice president for quality and risk management. “In his new role as a ‘Transitions of Care’ pharmacist, Fanba works with patients and their families prior to discharge – empowering the patients to manage their medications, and, therefore, better manage their overall health. He also visits discharged patients at home to ensure they have the tools they need to be successful.”

In addition to Fanba, the other nominees for Employee of the Year were Crystal Wardrup, Linda Tierney, Bill Vreeland, Kenny Kirkpatrick, Mary Bahen, Christina Riley, Caryn Wells, Dana Rose and Mary Arias.
Debbie Rosnage, director of surgical services, received the hospital’s Beacon Award, presented to the department leader who exemplifies outstanding leadership skills. Rosnage, who joined CMH in 1999, was recognized for her contributions to providing a safer environment for both patients and staff as well as demonstrating excellent leadership skills. Rosnage was nominated for the Beacon Award by three different members of her staff.  

Six other leaders were also nominated. They were Stephanie Cleaveland, Erin Farley, Mary Golway, Nicole Hedderich, Jim Marcum and Melanie Trifone.
Other leadership awards presented at the 42nd Annual Employee Awards Banquet held on May 6 included the Outstanding New Leader Award, presented to Nicole Hedderich, director of Quality Management, and the Most Impactful Leader Award, presented to Jim Marcum, director of Safety and Security.
