Danvers Resident Receives Rick Vescovi Award
Care Dimensions President and CEO Diane Stringer with award winner Dawnett White
DANVERS, Mass.—Care Dimensions, formerly Hospice of the North Shore & Greater Boston, announces that Dawnett White, RN, CHPN, a performance improvement and education coordinator, was awarded the nonprofit organization’s Rick Vescovi Memorial Award at a recent staff appreciation dinner. The award was established in memory of Rick Vescovi, a social worker for the organization who passed away in 2007. Care Dimensions President Diane Stringer announced White as the winner, saying that she epitomized the qualities that Vescovi was known for, including: a collaborative work style, a friendly open and accepting manner; a humble and unassuming nature, loyalty and a good sense of humor. White, a current Danvers resident and formerly a long-time Salem resident, has been with the hospice provider for four years. In her role, she trains new clinical employees and provides ongoing educational and training opportunities for existing employees. Stringer characterized White as someone who understands and practices the mission of Care Dimensions. “She represents us well and we are so lucky to have her on our staff,” Stringer said.
