Nomination from Kelly O’Brien, Heart Transplant Coordinator, Advanced Heart Failure Program, Cardiology:

“We had a record-breaking year for the number of heart transplants done in 2016 (56) and Leslie managed to get every one of them scheduled for their frequent clinic visits. She handles patient situations with ease and always finds a solution to every problem.

“On a day prior to a snowstorm, Leslie thoughtfully anticipated that many patients wouldn't be coming to Tufts for their appointments.  She reached out to all of the patients scheduled for the very busy Thursday clinic and asked if they were planning on coming in. 

“If they weren't going to make it, she made new appointments for each one of them after consulting with the nurses and doctors about the urgency of these visits. When the outpatient clinics were officially cancelled towards the end of the day, Leslie already had a jump start of re-scheduling the appointments.”

Congratulations, Leslie!
