Employee of the Year & Matthew F. McNulty Award Luncheon

The McNulty Award and Employees of the Year Award Luncheon was held March 9, 2017. Kevin J. Sexton, Former President & CEO, Holy Cross Health, was the 18th recipient of this award. Judith Rogers, President, Holy Cross Hospital, nominated Mr. Sexton to receive this 2016 award based on his belief that the number one job of a health care CEO is to embrace an inspirational mission and achieve clear focus throughout the organization on a strategy or plan to accomplish that mission. He inspired seasoned leaders as well as new employees. He mentored leaders in the organization and in the community in integrating mission and margin in focused, strategic and sustainable ways and he led by example. He embraced the legacy of the founding Sisters of the Holy Cross in ways that expanded and enlivened their vision of responding to community need, nurturing partnerships and valuing diversity.

Employees from participating healthcare facilities received the "Employee of the Year Award." This was the fifth Employee of the Year Event sponsored by the Healthcare Council, recognizing outstanding employees who contributed to extraordinary efforts in creating efficiencies, improving processes and contributing to customer satisfaction.
