George Fedee, a CT advance specialist, received the Edward B. Singleton Award for staff. This prestigious award acknowledges individuals within Radiology whose outstanding leadership and/or contribution to the mission of the department has a significant and positive impact on advancing patient care, education, research and Texas Children’s core values.
Fedee began his career in 2003 as a CT technologist and joined Texas Children’s in 2007. He is always looking for ways to improve imaging procedures and was key in helping develop protocols for the new Siemens scanner in the Lester and Sue Smith Legacy Tower at our Medical Center Campus.
Fedee’s leadership was critical in launching the CT portable and integrating it into the department’s regular scope of practice which is now a staple of service provided to some of the sickest children in the hospital who otherwise would have been too unstable to travel to the department. Fedee is known as a team player who encourages and inspires other through his hard work and dedication to patient care. His colleagues often seek advice and feedback from him on techniques and guidance because of his extensive knowledge and expertise.
The Edward B. Singleton award was named in memory of Dr. Singleton, an early pioneer in radiology and long-time physician at Texas Children’s.
