Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point’s Chuck Nagel Receives HCA West Florida Division’s Innovator Award

October 16, 2012

Hudson, FL – Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point (RMCBP) announces that Chuck Nagel, Radiation Safety Officer and a six year RMCBP employee, has been recognized for the HCA West Florida Division’s Innovators Award. Mr. Nagel submitted a financial impact idea that involves changing the ordering and consumption of radiopharmaceuticals in the nuclear medicine department.

The HCA Innovators Award is designed to help connect employees to the greater organization and reward them for innovative ideas that contribute to improvement at all levels. The award is designed to help find and promote great ideas that often don’t get shared with colleagues.

Awards are given, in one of three categories, at each hospital, one each at the West Florida Division, and one each at the HCA national level. Mr. Nagel has received both the Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point Innovators Award and the Division award. The hospital award includes a $1,000 check and the division award is an additional $2,500. Mr. Nagel now has the opportunity to receive an additional $10,000 if he is selected on the HCA corporate level.

The three categories are:  service excellence, quality and patient safety, and financial impact. Mr. Nagel’s idea was in the area of financial impact. The ideas must be:

  • Consistent with HCA’s Mission, Vision and Values
  • Support the facility’s strategic/business plan
  • Be able to be replicated and shared successfully with other HCA facilities
  • Be unique or improve existing processes
  • Demonstrate awareness of financial impact
  • Maintain or improve quality patient safety
  • Provide sustainable value for the cost; or produce savings

The Innovators Award, like the Frist Humanitarian Award, is designed to honor those whose actions leave a lasting impact on the work of HCA.
