Sisters welcome new Marymount Hospital President

On September 27, 2017, the SSJ-TOSF hosted a Eucharistic Liturgy, Rite of Installation and dinner at Marymount Congregational Home for the newly-appointed President of Marymount Hospital, Dr. Daniel Napierkowski. In addition to many Sisters, those in attendance to officially welcome Dr. Napierkowski to the Marymount Intergenerational Campus family included members of his family, friends, employees of Cleveland Clinic and Marymount Hospital, Cleveland Bishop Roger Gries, SSJ-TOSF President, Sister Marge White, and representatives from the various campus entities.

Founded in 1949 by the SSJ-TOSF, Marymount Hospital was a response to the healthcare needs of an up-and-coming suburban area of Cleveland. In 1995, Marymount became the first community hospital to join the Cleveland Clinic Health System. Today, the hospital remains a ministry of the SSJ-TOSF.

The photos below show the warm welcome Dr. Napierkowski received during this celebratory day.
