Farewell to a face of the Clinical Center
Michael Alexander retires after 43 years
After almost 43 years of dedicated service with NIH, Michael Alexander retired from his post as Hospitality Service Coordinator for the NIH Clinical Center's Office of Hospitality and Volunteer Services.
Alexander was a mainstay at the hospital's Main Lobby Hospitality desk, greeting patients and their families and known for an encyclopedic knowledge of the Clinical Center's locations, departments and resources.
In 2021, Alexander received an NIH Director's award from former director Dr. Francis Collins. He was recognized for his teamwork, professionalism and pleasant demeanor which created a "welcoming atmosphere for patients and staff throughout the hospital."
“Michael was and always will be a part of the NIH family. He inspired people and brought positivity to patients every day. We miss him already!” said Vivian Blair, the hospital’s chief of the Office of Hospitality and Volunteer Services.
