Each quarter, our OBHG colleagues commend their peers for going above and beyond with the You Delivered! peer-to-peer recognition program. For Q3 2018, OBHG recognizes Dr. David Lang and Sara Young with the You Delivered! award.
Dr. David Lang, Mercy Medical Center, Des Moines, Iowa
Dr. David Lang was nominated for stepping up for a teammate in need. He was nominated for being a selfless member of the Mercy Medical Center team and for an action “representative of who the man is as a husband, friend, father and a professional.”
When a fellow hospitalist broke her leg on the way to the hospital for her shift, Dr. Lang responded. He was at the Missouri County Fair watching his daughter’s prize goat take Best in Show for the state. As soon as his daughter was crowned the victor, Dr. Lang got in his car and drove four hours to relieve the hospitalist who remained until Dr. Lang arrived. He, along with the whole team, stepped up wherever possible to fill the remaining shifts.
Sara Young, Business Development Analyst
Sara Young was nominated for her leadership and impact on business development. Her nominator said, “Sara has worked tirelessly to implement the significant changes to our business development sales process that are a result of our recent solution-selling sales training course work.” Young’s work included a complete reconfiguration of a process to reflect new stages in the sales pipeline.
“She is making a significant impact on the Business Development team and challenging all of us to up our game. Many of the initiatives she has taken on with little direction or input and she is constantly trying to improve our process and growth trajectory,” wrote her nominator.
Congratulations Dr. David Lang and Sara Young!
