Pamela Cantrelle Honored as "Graphic Designer of the Year"

The Louisiana Society for Hospital Public Relations and Marketing (LSHPRM) has honored Pamela Cantrelle, North Oaks Health System's Print & Production Coordinator, as "Graphic Designer of the Year."

Cantrelle, an 8-year member of the North Oaks team, received the "Golden Pelican" in recognition of her passion for innovation, creativity and community service. The presentation was made at the 32nd Annual Pelican Awards Program on Friday, Oct. 11 at the Crowne Plaza Executive Center in Baton Rouge.

“Pam creatively and confidently led the image of our health system through a pivotal year,” affirms Tracy Randazzo, Vice President of Business Development for North Oaks Health System.

Cantrelle’s nomination described how her ability to generate and introduce creative ideas enhanced the celebration surrounding the expansion of North Oaks Medical Center in November 2012. The expansion symbolized a “new direction” in health care for the region with a focus on patient privacy, advanced surgical services and a rapidly growing medical staff.

In addition to her role as North Oaks’ Print & Production Coordinator, Pam serves as a board member—and was recently installed as chairman-elect—for OPTIONS, Inc., a non-profit organization that helps those with disabilities live and work in the community. She also is a 2012 graduate of Leadership Tangipahoa, a year-long program that provides emerging leaders with insight about the inter-relationships of community systems.

LSHPRM is an affiliate society of the Louisiana Hospital Association. Each year, LSHPRM sponsors the Pelican Awards to recognize and encourage improvement in quality, effectiveness and impact of hospital communications, public relations and marketing.
