Ochsner St. Anne employees win big at Ochsner’s Annual Spirit of Leadership Awards

NEW ORLEANS – It was a night of celebration as Ochsner Health System held its annual Spirit of Leadership awards banquet, Saturday April 16, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

The program acknowledges leaders, physicians, and teams demonstrating outstanding leadership qualities and contributions to their profession, Ochsner and the community. Employees and managers are encouraged to review the list of award categories and to send in nominations.

Out of the many qualified and nominated honorees in more than a dozen categories, all three of Ochsner St. Anne’s finalists walked away with the coveted bronze statue representative of excellence in their respective categories.

“We are thrilled for our Spirit of Leadership recipients, recognized for their hard work and dedication,” said Tim Allen, CEO, Ochsner St. Anne. “Their contributions demonstrate Ochsner St. Anne’s ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality of care available in the Bayou Region.”

The winners below were nominated by their peers for their work in 2015 that truly demonstrates Ochsner’s Mission, Vision, and Core Values:
- Crystal Risinger, RN, Nursery – Nurse of the Year
- Angelique Torres, Nurse Practitioner Lead, Internal Medicine – Advanced Practice Provider of the Year
- Jamie Huddleston, MD, Senior Physician, Neurology – Physician of the Year

This year commemorates the 12th year for acknowledging the Spirit of Leadership awards. Each Spirit of Leadership award recipient receives an Alton Ochsner statue, a certificate for display, and a commemorative photo and biography.
