“This recognizes and shows my appreciation for the continued support and sacrifice Nova has made with me and my family” said Santos Rivera, a Staff Physical Therapist Assistant at our Medical Center in Savannah, GA. Santos nominated both of his supervisors, Dr. Lee and Dr. Brooks.

Santos, a service member in the United States Military, chose to nominate his supervisors for the Patriot Award to show his gratitude for their support while he continues to be an active member in the military. Both Dr. Lee and Dr. Brooks were presented this award at the end of November by Mr. Rivera.

Nova Medical Centers is proud to support the U.S. Military.

An employee serving in the National Guard or Reserve, or the spouse of a Guard or Reserve member, may nominate individual supervisors and bosses for support provided directly to the nominating Service member and his or her family. The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support citizen warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.
