Hospital Acknowledges Project Impact with 2014 Spirit of Compassion Award

Swedish Covenant Hospital Foundation has selected Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI) Project Impact as the recipient of the 2014 Spirit of Compassion Award. This award recognizes outstanding individuals, and/or organizations who have made deep and lasting contributions to improving the lives of members of our community. “For the past two decades, Project Impact has partnered with hospitals to care for some of our most vulnerable patients¬ - those who enter the emergency department during a behavioral health crisis. Your dedicated staff has cared for our patients skillfully, compassionately, and with the utmost professionalism, -- ensuring patients are safe from harm, promoting continuity in their care, and improving their quality of life. We applaud your work and are deeply appreciative. We could not ask for a better partner,” stated Jennifer Tscherney, Executive Director of Swedish Covenant Hospital Foundation. The Spirit of Compassion Award will be presented to LSSI at a gala on October 18, 2014 at the Sheraton Hotel in Chicago.
