    FALLS CHURCH, Va. (NNS) -- Two Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery officers were recognized for excellence during the annual meeting of AMSUS, The Society of Federal Health Professionals, in National Harbor, Maryland on Dec. 5.

    Captain Kim Shaughnessy-Granger was recognized with the Military Health System (MHS) Nursing Leadership Excellence Award, which honors registered nurses who have demonstrated exemplary leadership skills, exceptional compassion and commitment, and contributing to improved nursing in the Military Health System (MHS).

    CAPT Shaughnessy- Granger’s accomplishments include visionary leadership in the leading headquarters team in highly successful Process Improvement for the Non-delayed Contraceptive (PINC) walk-in clinic project. Under her leadership, the program expanded to 24 locations across the Navy Medicine enterprise. As a recognized leader in integrating diverse teams, CAPT Shaughnessy-Granger was chosen to lead Healthcare Operations at BUMED, normally a flag-level or post-command duty position, through MHS transformation.

    The second officer recognized was Commander Rob Lippy. He was honored with the Allied Health Leadership Excellence Award, which honors military allied health professionals in the field at the tactical and operational level. Recipients of the honor demonstrated exemplary leadership and clinical skills/non-clinical skills.

    Commander Lippy’s accomplishments include developing the first ever best practice guidebooks for mental health providers embedded in fleet surgical teams, submarine forces, and aircraft carriers which enhanced mission specific support.
