Sylvia J. Martin Outstanding Technician Award

Sylvia J. Martin Cover Letter and Data Sheet

This award was created in 1998 to honor the memory of Sylvia J. Martin, a pharmacy technician at Mercy Health Center in Oklahoma City.  Sylvia served as a technician from 1992 until her untimely death on December 14, 1997, following a brief illness.  Sylvia was a dependable and proficient technician in a busy ICU/surgery satellite pharmacy.  Sylvia always took the time to extend a hand of kindness and friendship to everyone.  She developed professional relationships outside the pharmacy department and earned the respect of physicians, nurses, chaplains, and other health care workers.  She demonstrated a genuine concern for the welfare of patients.  She was devoted to her family and faith and took great pride in being a mom for her two young children, Ryan and Kayla.  Despite a busy schedule, she lent her considerable athletic talents to the Mercy softball and basketball teams.  Both teams raised funds for local charities.  She was recognized by her colleagues as an “Outstanding Technician” for the strong personal and professional example she was for all of us.


The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding Oklahoma Health-System pharmacy technicians.


This award may or may not be given annually depending on the qualifications of applicants.  There should not be more than one application/nomination for the same institution each year.  All applicants will be reviewed and voted upon by the Scholarship and Awards Committee of OSHP with final approval by the Board of Directors.
