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 (Compassion, Dignity, Justice, Excellence and Integrity) and working to bring people together to foster a shared responsibility for the quality of life in our community.

This year's recipients is Patricia Atallah, RN.

A dedicated nurse, Pat joined the Mission Hospital family in 1999 as director of Care Management. After many years in that role, Pat attempted to retire, but soon returned to the hospital as a benefactor liaison RN, a vital role on the foundation team.

Pat has touched so many lives through her compassionate care, warm and vibrant personality and devotion to others. She is consistently described as an angel who lovingly guides patients and their families through health concerns and tragedies. We are all blessed by Pat's remarkable Spirit of Giving. Congratulations to Pat Atallah, the 2017 Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick Vision Award recipient.
