  • Staff recognition

    Dana-Farber's Awards and Recognition program recognizes and rewards the incredible achievements of our staff. These programs support our efforts to create an ideal work environment, celebrate successes, and foster collaboration and teamwork.

    Rowlee Award for Staff Excellence

    The Rowlee Award for Staff Excellence is given annually to a member of Dana-Farber staff who leads by practicing outstanding work habits. This staff member gives his or her best on a daily basis, contributing to and sharing responsibility for establishing and maintaining Dana-Farber's high standards.

    The Rowlee Award is made possible through the generosity of Charles and Rowena Simberg of Scottsdale, Arizona, and reflects the first names of its creators, Rowena and Charlie.

    Any Dana-Farber staff member or contract employee, with the exception of MDs, PhDs, nurses, and supervisory staff, is eligible to receive the award.

    All Dana-Farber staff members, contract employees, patients, family members, and volunteers are welcome to submit a nomination. The winner is honored in an annual ceremony and receives an award of $1,000, courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Simberg.
