For being a shining example of what leadership in health care should look like, Cimarron Lagor was presented with a USF Health Culture Coin on Jan. 30 by Mark G. Moseley, MD, MHA, FACEP, associate vice president for clinical affairs at USF Health and president of the USF Tampa General Physicians, and by Renée Dubault, assistant vice president for Clinical Affairs and CEO of USF Health, for her compassionate heart, unwavering commitment, and exceptional leadership skills make her an invaluable asset to the Department of Pediatrics and USF Health, the leaders said.

“I am thankful and blessed to experience these professional victories and challenges with Cim as our leader. Thank you Cim for being you and for being the ever-shining light that leads us. Thank you for always being accessible and for always helping us with a smile on your face and kindness in your heart,” said Sandra R.

One of the most notable programs that Lagor introduced was the positive recognition program for Employee of the Month. Years later, this tradition continues to thrive, and employees are forever grateful for this opportunity to be recognized and appreciated for their hard work.
