The annual Associate Awards Banquet will be Saturday, May 6, 2006 at the Plaza Inn, to honor one hundred and four (104) St. Catherine Hospital Associates with Service Awards and recognize 1,270 cumulative years of service to St. Catherine Hospital. Scott Taylor, President and CEO said, “Their dedication and contribution to the hospital, Garden City and Southwest Kansas should not only be recognized by St. Catherine Hospital, but all whose lives are or will be touched by their healing ministry.”
“The ministry of the Dominican Sisters who originally founded St. Catherine Hospital 75 years ago continues today through the dedication and professionalism of our Associates. Today’s Associates are the best trained and equipped in St. Catherine Hospital’s history. Exemplifying the institutional core values of Reverence, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence, they continue the Mission and Ministry of St. Catherine,” Taylor said.
