Posted on October 5, 2017

St. Vincent Charity Medical Center prides itself on combining clinical excellence with human compassion for all our patients, including those suffering from the opioid epidemic. At a time when so many individuals are in need of care, your support – including by joining us for CARITAS 2017 on October 13 – can make a tremendous difference to our mission and the community.

Funds from this year’s event, held at the Huntington Convention Center, will be dedicated to the expansion of our addiction treatment services at Rosary Hall. The event will include awards to several of our caregivers and community partners for their servant leadership. 

Our 2017 honorees include:

  • St. Vincent de Paul Award – William Denihan, retired CEO of the ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County, for his 40-plus years as public servant for Greater Clevelanders
  • Radiant Spirit Award – Cathy Kopinsky, director of community outreach at SVCMC, who works selflessly, compassionately and generously in Central Neighborhood
  • Physician of the Year – Dr. Albana Dreshaj, a compassionate caregiver who advocates for her patients and regularly works to coordinate care plans for patients struggling to remain stable in their community
  • Clinical Nursing Excellent Awards – Nurses Mary Ann Naumann (Spine and Orthopedic Institute) and Cindy Amos (Behavioral Health) who demonstrate our core values – quality, integrity, teamwork and respect – every day as they serve patients and as mentors for other nurses

St. Vincent Charity is grateful for support from many, including our CARITAS 2017 reception sponsors: BakerHostetler, Medical Mutual of Ohio and St. Vincent Saint Luke’s Medical Staff; awards sponsor: Legacy Health Services; and entertainment sponsors:  CutisCare - Wound Center Management, GMA Consultants, KeyBank, Elizabeth P. Macintyre MD and Joseph A. Sopko MD, Mansour Gavin, David F. Perse MD and Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland.
