Mission Hospital Foundation

Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick Vision Award

The Vision Award was established in 1993 and was then renamed the Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick Vision Award in 2006. The award honors Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick, vice president, advocacy and ministry formation at Mission Hospital and celebrates an individual or group for living the core values of Mission Hospital (Dignity, Service, Excellence and Justice) and working to bring people together to foster a shared responsibility for the quality of life in our community.

This year's recipients is Dr. Peter Czuleger.

Dr. Czuleger has been a treasured member of our Mission Hospital family for more than 20 years and has played an integral role in both the foundation's stewardship and cultivation efforts. As the foundation physician liaison, he guides and cares for our most cherished donors and their families during illness and times of need.

Dr. Czuleger has touched so many lives and extensively shaped the foundation and hospital that it is an honor to recognize his service. We will officially present Dr. Czuleger with the Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick Vision Award later this spring.
