Ryan Malzahn, Transportation & Parking

August 2014 Golden Rose Recipient

Ryan Malzahn, August 2014

Nomination submitted by Betty Cole, Emergency General Surgery

I recently returned to work on light duty after suffering a fractured ankle. Still limited in my mobility by a bulky "boot" I requested an ADA parking space but was unable to walk to the parking office so asked if I might send someone else with my hang tag. Ryan, from Transportation & Parking, kindly came to my work area, made the needed copy, and ensured I was able to park in a spot near the elevator the very next day! What may seem trivial to others was a huge help to me. Ryan deserves to be recognized for "going the extra mile". There are so many of us who work here at OHSU that we may never cross paths, but I'll never forget Ryan’s kindness.
