Decker honored for employee achievement
Four employees of Saint Joseph’s Hospital recently receive this year’s Mother Frances Streitel Award.
The award recognizes employee achievements which best exemplify the four core values of Service, Presence, Justice and Vision, in the mission statement of Ministry Health Care.
Receiving the awards this year were Mary Decker, Dorchester, a pediatric registered nurse; Stephen Tully, Arpin, a registered nurse on the 3 North cardiac unit; Jeff Josephson, Marshfield, a staff pharmacist; and Fred Krahn Jr., Loyal, a maintenance employee in facilities management.
Decker has ministered in many unique ways to people who are poor emotionally, spiritually, financially and physically. She has provided transportation and assistance in grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions or paying a bill for elderly people.
She has supplied bags of groceries to people she hears of who are struggling, and provided cards and letters of encouragement to those having difficulty in life. She has enthusiasm and the gift of service, putting words into action and doing so with love and compassion.
