February 8, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Accolades and Milestones

Congratulations to Kendra Huiskens, physical therapist clinical specialist at University of Michigan MedSport, for receiving the 2016 Gerald O’Connor Award!

The award is given annually to a colleague who demonstrates excellence in patient care or customer service, teamwork, selfless effort, dedication to the profession and a never-ending desire to improve themselves. The award was created to honor Gerald O’Connor, M.D., and his exemplary legacy for the MedSport Sports Medicine Program.

Kendra’s colleagues said:

“Kendra Huiskens is a PT Clinical Specialist at MedSport @ The Ice Cube and has been with U-M for just over 8 years. Kendra demonstrates and exceeds customer service, teamwork and dedication expectations at MedSport. Kendra’s patient care is exceptional. Her patients come back to the clinic, and call and email to send special thanks for the work she has done and the care she has provided. Kendra is always a team player, even paying attention to other clinician’s patient’s needs when the clinic is busy and someone may need an extra hand. She is my personal go-to for answers to any questions I might have. And Kendra is always willing to make an already long day longer if we need to get a new patient scheduled and our open slots do not accommodate the patient’s availability.”
