Botsford Hospital Microbiologist Chosen for Professional Award

Farmington Hills, Mich. (June 12, 2009)---Botsford Hospital in Farmington Hills has selected Celise Roy as the recipient of its 2009 Joseph H. Langnas, D.O. Memorial Laboratory Enrichment Award. 
 
In addition to her microbiology duties in Botsford Hospital’s Division of Laboratory Services in 2008, Roy took on the responsibility of acting section head until a permanent manager was in place. 
 
Moreover, Roy began serving in 2006 as a certified inspector for the College of American Pathologists. Taking time out of her own practice to inspect other laboratories increases her professional knowledge through the exchange of ideas with practicing pathologists and technologists working in laboratories of a comparable size to Botsford’s. 
 
“One of Celise’s greatest assets as a laboratorian is that she is a real ‘bench person.’ She just cranks out the work,” says Gil Herman, M.D., Ph.D., Botsford Hospital’s director of laboratory medicine and chair of pathology. “Her swift and sure identification of samples for bacteria, fungi and parasites means that patients can begin appropriate treatment quickly. Her top-notch lab work has benefited thousands of patients at Botsford Hospital over the years. I am very proud of her, as is our entire lab staff who voted to honor her with the Langnas Award.” 
 
This award is named for the former medical director of Botsford Hospital’s Laboratory and chair of the its Pathology Department who passed away in 2005. The award supports the attendance of a Botsford Hospital lab employee at a professional society educational meeting.
