Reston Hospital Center. Award citation: “Presented to Reston Hospital Center in recognition of the exceptional accessible route improvements for safe and efficacious access for patients and guests with mobility disabilities, accomplished with the leadership of Tracey White, Vice President for Community & Government Relations and Jane E. Raymond, Chief Executive Officer.”
Tracey White, VP for Community & Government Relations at Reston Hospital Center reached out to Reston Accessibility Committee (RAC) in September, 2012, when she learned that concern had been expressed to RAC by a Reston resident about accessibility at the hospital. The eventual project required a considerable amount of work, including relocating and adding accessible parking spaces, creating curb ramps, adding crosswalks, and installing new accessible parking signs.
Ms. White and CEO Jane Raymond entered into the process with enthusiasm and reliability. With Tracey’s conscientious shepherding, the accessible route improvements were finished in April, 2013. Presented August 14, 2013, at a meeting of the Rotary Club of Reston.
