Michelle MacDonald, a clinical systems analyst at Copley Hospital, has been honored as Copley Hospital’s Team Hero. Colleagues recognized MacDonald for her leadership role as an ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) trainer. The Copley Team Hero award recognizes employees who exemplify the hospital’s values of community, respect and compassion, service excellence and life-long learning.

MacDonald was one of a dozen Copley Hospital employees that participated in an ALICE instructor course to become a certified ALICE trainer, and in turn, train other Copley staff. MacDonald took on additional responsibilities, including scheduling of classes, communications with instructors, scheduling staff for trainings, providing follow-up, and record keeping.    “Without Michelle’s leadership, the ALICE team would not have been able to keep the training momentum moving forward,” said Mark Sutton, Copley’s Director of Facilities, Safety & Security. “This leadership quality clearly demonstrates how valuable of an employee Michelle is to Copley.”

MacDonald joined Copley in 2013 as Practice Manager at The Women’s Center. She transferred to the hospital’s Information Technology Department this past June. She resides in Hyde Park with her husband. Jim, and enjoys spending her free time with her grandchildren.
