CAMLS Anthony Noriega earns USF Health Culture Coin for Outstanding Customer Service

Anthony Noriega, CAMLS education and planning coordinator, recently received a USF Health Culture Coin from USF Health senior vice president and Morsani College of Medicine Dean Charles Lockwood, MD, MHCM.


















Anthony Noriega, of the Center for Advance Medical and Learning Simulation (CAMLS), became the third recipient of a USF Health Culture Coin August 16.

Anthony joined the CAMLS team in 2017, as a program assistant and was quickly promoted to education and planning coordinator, handling larger and more complex programs including those with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and HealthTrust.

Excerpt read by Charles Lockwood, MD, MHCM, during Anthony’s ceremony:

During a recent Women’s Health Mini-Residency with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs at CAMLS, Anthony went above and beyond in providing superior service and hospitality.  His professionalism and enthusiasm were commended by the visitors who wrote a special thank you to Anthony who was very helpful and checked on them team continually throughout the day.”

CAMLS executive director Haru Okuda, MD, FACEP, FSSH, echoed those sentiments by praising his “exceptional excellence, accountability, and respect.”

The Culture Coin is part of a broader USF Health-wide initiative offering a fresh examination of what USF Health stands for, including updating the mission, values and principles that drive faculty and staff to put their best forward. These focus on becoming lifelong learners, constantly striving to improve, and display the gritty resolve necessary to continuously perform at the highest level. The coin itself is a symbol of dedication, optimism, inclusiveness, transparency and innovation and will be awarded to exemplary employees who go above and beyond in representing USF Health values.
