On Thursday, October 6th, St. Vincent Charity hosted its signature fundraising event called Caritas: A Celebration of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center in Cleveland. Caritas, Latin for love of all people, is a celebration of St. Vincent Charity’s important role in providing Care Beyond Medicine throughout our community. Caritas is central to the mission of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine. The event was a celebration of that love and a poignant reminder of how love heals.

We are incredibly thankful to Medical Mutual, our presenting sponsor, and all of our generous sponsors and benefactors for their ongoing support of our good work. We also give special thanks to our Caritas co-chairs, Tony and Rachelle Coyne and Zydrunas and Jennifer Ilgauskas. Caritas raised $460,000 in support of our medical center’s mission.

In addition to announcing our collaboration with Cleveland State University that evening, we were able to honor four individuals who personify the mission and values of our hospital:

Lloyd Cook, MD – Physician of the Year
Margaret W. Wong, Esq. – St. Vincent de Paul Award Recipient and SVCMC Board Member
Mary Martin, RN – Clinical Nursing Excellence Award
Eugene Jordan – Radiant Spirit Award

With close to 500 people in attendance, this event gave us the opportunity to highlight and educate friends, donors and the community on who we are and what our mission is all about.

Congratulations to all of our Caritas Award winners. May all of us be inspired by their lives and the compassionate care they help us deliver each and every day. Visit our YouTube channel to watch all of the award winner videos.
