Dianne Blair Presented Leadership Award12:00AM / Tuesday, October 10, 2006
Williamstown - Dianne Blair, of North Adams, a 19-year employee of the Williamstown Medical Associates, recently earned the WMA's Leadership Development Award.
The award was presented at the medical practice's "all
stakeholder" meeting on September 27 at the Williams Inn.
Blair was nominated by several co-workers and several patients to receive the Leading by Example Award. She has worked for WMA since 1987.
"Dianne is a constant source of cheer and competence, much loved by patients and staff alike," said Robert Jandl, M.D., president of WMA.
The Leadership Development Award, given three times each year, was established to recognize one or more employees who exemplify the ideals to which Williamstown Medical Associates aspires, including patient-centered service, demonstrable quality of care, and a motivating workplace.
In addition to receiving a cash award, recipients have their names inscribed on a plaque in WMA's waiting rooms, and are given a special name badge.
WMA opened its doors on April 29, 1958, when H. Collier Wright, M.D., and Robert K. Davis, M.D., established the practice with a staff of four. Now, more than 47 years later, WMA has become one of the largest independent physician-owned and operated facilities in New England.
WMA has offices on Adams Road in Williamstown and in the Ambulatory Care Center at North Adams Regional Hospital.
