Noah Lundy, EMHS Human Resources director of East Region A, oversees the workers’ compensation department at the hospital and describes their success as a direct result of hard work and passion. “This award for safety excellence represents the tireless work and dedication of all Blue Hill Memorial Hospital employees to ensure safety is a top priority for both patients and staff.” EMG only chooses a member of the group, for the Safety Excellence award, who meets a list of rigorous safety criteria—due to the high standards necessary to obtain this award.  In fact, there are some years where if member organizations do not meet the standards, the recognition is not awarded.
