PHIL Award Winner
Melinda was nominated by the family of Elizabeth Guzzo.

They wanted to express their appreciation for the great care of their
grandmother Elizabeth Guzzo during her stay April 2nd through the

Direct quote: Everyone that took care of her from doctors and
nurses to techs and aides were friendly, informative and
compassionate. The two employees who especially stood out are
Brenda, the nurse who worked a lot with my Grandmother and
Melinda, the respiratory specialist who tended to her when that was
needed. Melinda was very efficient and helpful. When we had
questions about the respiratory situation my grandmother was in,
she explained what was going on without confusion.

Although my grandmother died there, our total experience at St.
Joseph’s –Howell was one that we still talk highly about.
