Michael Hamel – Covenant Living of Cromwell

Michael Hamel remembers his first day on the job at Covenant Living of Cromwell in 2013, when talk of developing a full-fledged town center within the New England senior living community was on the horizon. Now, seeing people bustling around the new campus, which celebrated its grand opening in May, Hamel says is heartwarming. The […]

Edward Merwick – UPMC Chautauqua

When Edward Merwick started working at UPMC Chautauqua, his to-do list had over 300 items. Now, almost two years later, everything is checked off. Doors have been replaced, cracks have been repaired and paint has been touched up. Nothing in the hospital has been overlooked. Merwick, the facilities manager, isn’t in the clear yet, though. […]

Robert Jones – Methacton School District

Robert Jones feels the impact of his work every day. While a construction crew builds the new Arrowhead Elementary School, students are eagerly watching next door. The school’s principal tells Jones that kids line the playground fence during recess as heavy machinery and people in hardhats dig holes and put up the new structure. Jones, […]

Jim Sheeley – Pulaski Central School District

When Jim Sheeley was a student at Pulaski Central School District, he never thought about how the buildings were repaired and maintained. Now it’s all he thinks about. As the director of facilities at his alma mater, Sheeley knows the schools more intimately than some. After all, he spent 13 years walking their halls and […]

Demar Vassell – God’s Love We Deliver

With COVID-19 putting already vulnerable populations at even higher risk—including those enduring chronic illness—nonprofits like God’s Love We Deliver have had to step up in a major way. In just the first three months of the pandemic, the organization delivered hundreds of thousands of meals to people throughout the New York City metropolitan area. And […]

Jeremy Smith – Capital District Transportation Authority

It’s not a Japanese bullet train, but employees at the Capital District Transit Authority are proud of upstate New York’s second Bus Rapid Transit line that hit the road last winter with a fleet of shiny blue and silver buses moving riders around Albany and surrounding communities. Known as the River Corridor Bus Rapid Transit […]

Joshua Roney – Sodexo

It was not a job requiring the nuclear physics Joshua Roney had learned in the U.S. Navy and the civilian nuclear energy industry. But while he wasn’t splitting atoms, he was certainly splitting duties, work shifts and even floors as he oversaw construction of a new behavioral health unit at a hospital in McKees Rocks, […]

Robert Stiers – White Plains Hospital

When White Plains Hospital opens its new Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery in summer 2021, it will begin another “decanting” process, continuing its multi-year transformation of how the hospital, north of New York City, treats Westchester County residents, says Robert Stiers. “Decanting” as in the care provided at the new center will draw outpatients […]

Patricia Smith – Cabrini University

Glance at a map of the Philadelphia metro area and one thing you’ll notice are the colleges and universities. There’s Villanova, the University of Pennsylvania, Temple, La Salle and Saint Joseph’s—known as the Big Five. There’s also Drexel, Bryn Mawr, Swarthmore and others. That’s meant, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, administrators could pool their […]

Eric Brigante – Nashoba Valley Medical Center

For Eric Brigante, the adage “without hard work nothing grows but weeds,” sparks memories of his childhood. As early as five years old, Brigante was working full time on his family’s vegetable farm in Vermont, where he spent many a long summer day learning the importance of building honest relationships—ones built on mutual integrity. What’s […]
