Dr. Carolyn Levis wins Sister Joan O’Sullivan Award
McMaster University’s Dr. Carolyn Levis won the Sister Joan O’Sullivan Award at the Annual St. Joseph’s Hospital Medical Staff Association (MSA) meeting last week.
The award, the most prestigious honour bestowed by the MSA, is given annually to a physician who exemplifies outstanding teaching and clinical abilities while maintaining the values of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Hamilton.
Nominees for the award must have demonstrated respect for the dignity of all persons with special obligation to the poor and unwanted; been available to staff, patients, and clients; created an effective learning environment; strove for excellence; and made a difference in peoples’ lives.
Dr. Levis, an associate professor of plastic surgery, will have her name added to the Sister Joan O’Sullivan Award plaque, which is displayed at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
