(O’Fallon, IL) – HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Foundation and hospital leadership congratulate the 2018 recipients of the Drs. Salil K. and Vandana Gupta Family Endowment Excellence Awards.
Susan Holloway BSN, RN, Interim Director of Surgical Services and Director of Construction Management, and Gina Guinn, a registered nurse from the Women and Infants Center, were chosen to receive the award.
The endowment and awards were established through the generosity of the Gupta family to annually recognize two HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital colleagues who exhibit a clear commitment to the mission, vision and values of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. Award recipients were nominated by their peers and then selected through a blind review process by committee.
Holloway and Guinn were selected because of their outstanding commitment to St. Elizabeth’s core values of Respect, Care, Competence, and Joy, as well as their notable support of the Franciscan mission of Hospital Sisters Health System. Both of these dedicated colleagues have served St. Elizabeth’s Hospital for over 20 years and are most deserving of this recognition.
Dr. Salil Gupta was on the medical staff at St. Elizabeth’s for over 20 years. He was instrumental in growing the neonatal/intermediate care nursery and protocols to elevate the care offered to premature babies delivered at the hospital.
To honor the Guptas’ wishes, one colleague serving in a management position and a second colleague who specifically works in the Women and Infants Center will be nominated and honored with this award annually.
Hospital leadership congratulates both colleagues for their continued success in competently and compassionately serving the many patients, visitors, and colleagues who hold them in such high regard.
