AdventHealth Manchester Radiology Department's Dave Owens Honored with Prestigious Sunflower Award for Q1 2024

AdventHealth Manchester is proud to announce that Dave Owens, a distinguished member of our Radiology Department, has been awarded the Sunflower Award for the first quarter of 2024. This accolade is a testament to Owens' exceptional dedication to patient care and his unwavering commitment to excellence.

The Sunflower Award is a highly respected recognition within the AdventHealth Manchester community, celebrating individuals who go above and beyond in their service to patients and colleagues alike. Dave Owens has consistently demonstrated these qualities, earning the admiration and respect of his peers.

The award ceremony took place on April 11, 2024, where colleagues and members of the AdventHealth leadership team gathered to honor Owens' achievements. Owens was also recognized for a recent act of compassion in the hospital cafeteria. When a young girl with a food voucher was unsure if it would cover her meal, Owens assured her to get anything she liked, offering to pay the difference. This gesture, emblematic of the service and kindness that the Sunflower Award celebrates, was met with a heartfelt smile and gratitude from the girl.

Jamie Couch, Vice President of Operations at AdventHealth, expressed his enthusiasm for Owens' recognition, "Dave Owens embodies the spirit of the Sunflower Award through his exceptional service and leadership. His contributions have not only enhanced the quality of care we provide but have also inspired his colleagues to strive for the same level of passion and dedication."

AdventHealth Manchester is committed to recognizing and celebrating the hard work and achievements of our healthcare professionals. The Sunflower Award is one of the many ways we honor those who make a difference in the lives of the patients we serve.
