Calian Employee Awarded Esteemed Liz Hoffman Memorial Commendation
Calian psychiatrist, Dr. Deborah Elliott, has been awarded the Department of National Defence’s Liz Hoffman Memorial Commendation for her exceptional work at CFB Trenton.
The Liz Hoffman Memorial Commendation is an annual commendation that recognizes Canadian Armed Forces members, civilian employees and family members who go the extra mile and exceed expectations in helping their colleagues resolve a difficult problem or in bringing about positive and lasting change to the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces.
“This award is a testament to the hardworking and dedicated employees that we have here at Calian. Dr. Elliott is a great example of someone who goes above and beyond her role every day, and we are proud to have her on our team,” said Scott Murray, VP Health Services, Calian.
In the last 10 years, Calian has had a proven track record in providing quality health services to the Canadian Armed Forces, employing healthcare professionals in 60 categories at up to 32 bases, wings and units across Canada.
Dr. Elliott was presented the award at the Department of National Defence’s Liz Hoffman Memorial Commendation ceremony, which took place at the Army Officer’s Mess on October 22, 2015.
Liz Hoffman was an investigator with the Ombudsman's Office who had a deeply rooted sense of fairness and was a tremendous force for positive change. This commendation allows the Office to recognize those in the Defence community who, like Liz, are dedicated to helping others and making a difference, according to the Department of National Defence.
