Congratulations to IHTC Hematologist Jay Gaddy, MD!
Each year the St. Vincent medical staff president recognizes outstanding accomplishments of staff and associates. Dr. Jay Gaddy and two colleagues have received the 2015 Presidents Award for their outstanding work in Transfusion Product management. These three individuals have worked countless hours evaluating, managing and directing blood product utilization. They developed the “Why Use 2 When 1 Will Do” campaign. They have been involved in transfusion programs at the local, state and even national level with Ascension Health. They have developed utilization report cards for providers to help in tracking best practices. As a result of their work, blood product use has been markedly more efficient, leading to higher quality and safety for our patients in addition to significant financial savings.
