Lourdes clinical house supervisor wins Mission Award

Darrell New was named the 2013 Sister Mary Eleanor Mission award winner during Lourdes annual service awards banquet.    Darrell was voted on by his peers for exhibiting the core values and mission of Lourdes in helping extend the healing ministry of Jesus. 

“Darrell is a shining example of a servant leader. He not only speaks the mission and values, he lives them daily, which is recognized by his peers and those on his team,” said Levi Loverkamp, Lourdes Manager of Human Resources.  “He always places the needs of our patients and employees above his own needs.”

The Sister Mary Eleanor Mission Award, established in 1988, is named for Sister Mary Eleanor Rahig, a leader in the first group of St. Franciscan Sisters at Lourdes who set the standard for patient care and employee relationships that truly continue the healing mission of Christ.

Beginning with their first day, September 19, 1959, the sisters inspired those employed at Lourdes to work to exhibit behaviors toward one another, patients, family, physicians, volunteers and visitors, that assure the mission of Lourdes is effectively and mutually experienced.

Each year the organization recognizes one leader who has been visible in exemplifying Lourdes’ Core Values of Excellence, Human Dignity, Justice, Compassion, Sacredness of Life, and Service.

The award was announced and presented during the organization’s Annual Service Awards Banquet held in January.  Darrell is an 18-year employee of Lourdes where he serves as the Clinical House Director. He received a travel voucher, plaque, and certificate.
