Heather Harms recognized with provincial award of excellence.

The Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT-BC) Award of Excellence is presented to individuals who consistently demonstrate excellence in technical proficiency and innovation. While never compromising patient care, the recipients of this award ensure every procedure is carried out to the highest possible standard. These individuals are respected by their coworkers for the care and attention in performing all procedures.

CAMRT-BC is pleased to present the Award of Excellence – Magnetic Resonance to Heather Harms, Registered Technologist, Radiological Technology, Medical Radiation Technologist, at the University Hospital of Northern BC (UHNBC).

“She is by far the most conscientious person I have ever worked with, and I have been a tech for 31 years. She arrives early every single shift and is truly dedicated to the patient in every way. She is very compassionate, professional, and thorough. She routinely goes above and beyond for each case, checking safety screening, looking up prior studies and reports. Her decision-making is always in the best interest of the patient. Her work habits are second to none. Our team jokes about the rest of us trying to keep up with her for cleaning and stocking as she is so efficient, we almost have to race her to get to a task first! She has a growth mindset and is continually learning more about becoming the best MRI technologist she can be. I truly believe she is the most deserving recipient of this award.”

– Lorraine Guillet, Registered Technologist, Radiological Technology, Medical Radiation Technologist
