Inland Hospital has announced its Clinical Excellence Awards for 2013. The awards are an Inland tradition that celebrates and recognizes the work and talents of the finest professional clinical staff at the hospital. Nominations for the Clinical Excellence Award come from peers and winners are chosen for their clinical competency and excellence in customer service. This year’s Clinical Excellence Award winner is Don Goodale, Echocardiography Team Leader at Heart First Diagnostics.
