HARTFORD – Five St. Francis Care staff members received either the Sisters of St. Joseph or the Living Our Mission award during a ceremony at the hospital April 22.
Named for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Chambéry who established a two-room hospital in the Asylum Hill neighborhood to care for the growing immigrant population, the Sisters of St. Joseph Award is presented to two employees who exemplify the ideals of the hospital’s founders: service, charity and healing.
The Living Our Mission Award recognizes employees, chosen by their peers, who strive to fulfill the St. Francis mission and core values of respect, integrity, service, leadership and stewardship.
