According to the employee who nominated Doran for TRAC STAR, “Heather is very compassionate with her patients and is always willing to take the extra time in making patients comfortable, especially in MRI exams. She is always advancing her skills and learning new things to be a stronger tech.”

Hospital CEO Bob Morasko presented Doran with a $200 gift check, a jacket with the hospital's TRAC logo, and a certificate to be professionally photographed. A plaque with her photo will be displayed in the hospital café.

Morasko also acknowledged the other two award finalists, Lab Phlebotomist Raven Stubbs of Buena Vista and Environmental Services Technician Kathy Domjanich of Salida.

Stubbs’ nominator said, “She is sensitive to patients’ unique needs…and is attentive to what they have to say.”

Domjanich was acknowledged for her important contribution to patient care and safety. “She keeps things clean so not to spread infection throughout the hospital,” said her nominator.

HRRMC employees can nominate any of their colleagues for the TRAC STAR award. Members of the hospital's Communications Team review all nominations, and then cast individual ballots to determine the finalists and winner. All finalists are eligible to be named TRAC STAR of the Year.
