April 13, 2017

Thirty-one team members from across all of Presby’s communities were nominated over eight categories.

On Monday, April 10, 2017, Presby’s Inspired Life held its Distinguished Service Awards ceremony. The annual event honors and recognizes Presby team members for exceptional and distinguished dedication to Presby.

Members of Presby senior executive team selected the winners in eight categories from a pool 31 team members across all of Presby’s communities. All nominees were nominated by their colleagues.

Marina Hacking, the executive director of Rosemont and Broomall, was selected as this year’s recipient of the President’s Award, which was presented to her by Presby president and CEO Judee M. Bavaria. “With careful diligence and an unwavering commitment, Marina has made an exceptional impact in just five short years,” Judee said. “Beyond Rosemont and Broomall, Marina’s deep love and passion for the Presby ministry is evident by her philanthropic support, which stretches outside the boundaries of Rosemont and Broomall to touch the lives of our residents in many of our Affordable Housing Communities.”
