St. Claire HealthCare Receives Kentucky Hospital Association President’s Award
St. Claire HealthCare (SCH) recently received the Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA) President’s Service Award for her dedication and persistence throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While hospitals regularly prepare for emergencies, no one could have anticipated the reality of the past year.” said Nancy C. Galvagni, President of KHA. “This special award of merit recognizes Kentucky hospitals who have been on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19 and caregivers who have worked tirelessly to provide compassionate care and ultimately save lives.”
In addition to responding to the primary, specialty and emergency care its patients depend on amid a global pandemic, SCH also began serving as a regional COVID-19 testing site in April 2020 and has been providing community vaccinations since January 2021. This time, SCH collected samples for more than 30,000 COVID-19 tests and administered at least one dose of the Moderna vaccine to more than 11,000 patients across the region.
“It is an honor to accept this award on behalf of the leaders of SCH and the many men and women who have demonstrated tireless strength and commitment to our mission throughout the pandemic,” said Donald H. Lloyd, II, CEO of SCH. “The work of our doctors, nurses and frontline staff to fight this virus has been nothing short of heroic. They really deserve this recognition. “
The Kentucky Hospital Association, established in 1929, represents hospitals, related health care organizations, and integrated health care systems dedicated to maintaining and improving the health status of the citizens of Kentucky.
