Liz Moro to be honored with radiant spirit award for going above and beyond during 42-year career

Liz Moro’s job title is nurse manager for the St. Vincent Charity Medical Center Outpatient Oncology/Infusion Department, but she is much more to patients and her fellow caregivers.

“Liz is a good person who always makes those around her feel good—she always lifts you up, makes time, is never too busy and is always patient with people.”

That was one of more than a dozen quotes about Liz submitted from other caregivers as part of her selection for the 2018 Radiant Spirit Award.

St. Vincent Charity will honor Liz with the 2018 Radiant Spirit award at the St. Vincent de Paul Feast Day Mass and reception on September 27 for her dedication and selfless service to those around her. The award honors those individuals within the St. Vincent Charity community who live lives of quiet dignity, service to their fellow human beings, heroism, generosity of spirit, warmth, leadership, care and love.

In his letter to Liz to let her know the hospital’s senior leadership team had chosen her for the award, Dr. David Perse, St. Vincent Charity president and CEO, wrote, “You provide an encouraging touch to patients and other caregivers and you do so with purpose and joy. You are a woman of faith, generous with your cards to those celebrating, prayers to those suffering or even the donuts to the nursing orientation classes. Your 42-year career here has brought distinction to St. Vincent Charity and this community by the lives you continue to touch so compassionately.”

Liz has been a nurse at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center since 1976 and attended the St. Vincent Charity School of Nursing. In addition to her role in the Oncology/Infusion Department, Liz is also Med-Surg nurse educator in the Organizational Development Department.

Bev Lozar, senior vice president and chief operating officer at St. Vincent Charity, said Liz demonstrates the mission of the hospital and lives the core values of the hospital—respect, integrity, quality and teamwork. “Liz is willing to go the extra mile for others and does so with a smile,” said Bev. She added, “Liz is also creative and a great party planner.”
