At the Clinical Center Director's Annual Address and Awards Ceremony on Dec. 18, 2016, Dr. John I. Gallin, director of the Clinical Center, summarized the events that occurred in 2015 and honored staff from various departments.

"During this holiday season of promise and joy, we continue to be inspired by the dedication and spirit of our staff," said Gallin. "This year brought leadership and clinical operations changes, a Joint Commission visit, continued Ebola responses, VIP visitors and the Discovery Channel project. We stepped up to face all of these challenges and will do so again in 2016. You are the reason the Clinical Center remains the House of Hope."

Gallin recognized Clinical Center staff who are NIH leaders on the front lines of clinical research and innovation. Highlights included recognition for excellence in customer service, mentoring, scientific advancements, enhancing the electronic medical records system, patient care and safety, improving quality of work life and diversity, and training.
