In 2019, WakeMed Introduced the Shawn Hamlet Award

At the Pyramid Society Award Dinner and Reception in October 2019, WakeMed President & CEO Donald Gintzig announced that WakeMed has established a new award in honor of Shawn Hamlet, who passed away earlier this year. The Shawn Hamlet Award: Inspiring Others Through Service will be given annually to a WakeMed employee who has overcome adversity and made an outstanding impact on our organization. In this inaugural year, the award was given in honor and memory of Shawn Hamlet himself. Watch this video to hear more about Shawn’s impact and legacy.
