Date: January 10, 2019

NEEDHAM, MASS. — Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Needham (BID–Needham) recently celebrated 72 employees and their 1,020 years of combined service to the hospital. BID–Needham also recognized Eiblis Goldings, Administrative Assistant to the Finance Department and the Compliance Department, as its 2018 Employee of the Year in recognition of her commitment to the hospital and her colleagues.

“Eiblis always goes the extra mile, no matter what,” said Nancy Hoffmann, chief financial officer of BID–Needham. “She has spent nearly five years at the hospital, and from the start she displayed a positive, can-do attitude, with a great sense of humor. Eiblis is often the first to offer help, education and support to anyone who needs it.”

“Each year, we are proud to honor the employees who have chosen to spend their careers with us, and I am honored to give this year’s award to Eiblis Goldings,” said John Fogarty, president and CEO of BID–Needham. Eiblis consistently displays BID-Needham’s core values of accountability, compassion, professionalism and respect for all.”

“My family and I have had a long history with the medical community of Boston and Beth Israel Deaconess," Goldings said. "My grandmother was a volunteer driver helping patients get to their medical appointments in 1929 at what was then Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. It is a pleasure to be part of a community which fosters and recognizes the unique individuals who provide care and service to the communities of eastern Massachusetts.”

A Needham resident, Eiblis rescues and trains dogs in her spare time. She is also a talented artist, whose painting was recently featured on the cover of an anthology of 15 women writers called, “Life Matters... and other stories.”

The Employee of the Year selection is based on peer nominations submitted to a committee that evaluates each nomination for consistent demonstration of the hospital’s core values of accountability, compassion, professionalism and respectfulness.

In addition to Goldings, BID–Needham honored 72 hospital employees for five, 10, 15, 25, 35, 40 and 45 years of service. One employee was recognized for 45 years of service to BID–Needham, Patricia Baynes (Stress Lab).
