YONKERS, N.Y. -- Bon Secours New York Health System’s Schervier Nursing Care Center honored Yonkers resident Dr. John D’Ambrosio with its Values in Action Award at a recent ceremony.
The Values in Action award honors those employees who live Bon Secours’ mission to bring compassion to health care and to be “good help” to those in need, especially the poor, elderly and the dying.
D'Ambrosio was nominated by his peers and fellow leaders for his innovative approach to caring for the elderly, and for his compassion towards those dealing with the heartbreaking decisions of death and dying.
“He takes time to educate staff on different diagnoses and prognoses so that we are better equipped to understand a particular resident’s needs," Jennifer Giuffrida, director of Social Work said in a statement. "He is an advocate for his patients; he is consistently able to capture their individual needs and wants at the end of life.”
