GENEVA – TriCity Family Services, a private, nonprofit community mental health center serving central and southern Kane County, presented its 37th Annual William D. Barth Award to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva on Friday, Oct. 22, according to a news release.
The brief morning presentation, held outside the south entrance on the Delnor campus, featured guest speakers Michelle Rollins, director of development; Laura Poss, executive director; Geneva Mayor Kevin Burns and Dr. Jonathan Song, medical staff president, with more than 20 healthcare workers also in attendance to accept the award.
Established in 1985, the Barth Award honors the memory of William D. Barth, a founder of TriCity Family Services and dedicated community leader. The annual distinction is bestowed on someone whose belief in the community and concern for those living here is demonstrated by an ongoing involvement in philanthropy. Historically, the award is presented in late October during a dinner reception that is open to the public, the release stated.
“This collective group of hospital management and local caregivers … our Geneva neighbors and longtime community supporters … have gone above and beyond their daily commitments during this pandemic,” stated Michelle Rollins, director of development at TriCity Family Services. “We all recognize how taxing the past 18 months have been for everyone. It was deeply important to us that these first responders, these heroes, know how very much appreciated they are to this community … for displaying such courage and strength during a global crisis. Amidst such daunting challenges, we proudly acknowledge Delnor’s selfless dedication to helping others.”
