Columbia University Irving Medical Center has honored six individuals with 2021 Baton Awards that recognize teamwork by staff members who keep their eyes on group success rather than individual accomplishments.

The awards were created in 2009 to recognize individuals who “go the extra distance to make sure that if a teammate fumbles, they are there to catch the baton and who trust their colleagues to take the baton from them when they pass it along, understanding that any success is a shared one.”

The awards were presented at the Dec. 3 meeting of the CUIMC Administrators Network. 

Ryan Lichtcsien, department administrator and chief financial officer for the Department of Neurology, is one of the six Recipients of 2021 Baton Award:

Ryan Lichtcsien joined Columbia in 2009 and served in multiple financial management and research administration positions in the Gertrude H. Sergievsky Center and the Dean’s Office before becoming department administrator and CFO for the Department of Neurology and the Sergievsky Center in 2018.
