Kathy Koehler, a 19-year nurse who serves in the Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Michigan City Medical-Surgical unit, accepts an annual St. Camillus Award plaque from Matthew Troy, MD, medical staff president, during a recent meeting.

The award, presented on behalf of hospital physicians to honor nurses for exceptional service, is named for Camillus, a priest who founded a religious order dedicated to the care of the sick.

Koehler said she was “flabbergasted, honored and humbled” to receive the honor, adding, “I just love taking care of people.” Dr. Troy said Koehler, “goes above and beyond the call in dealing with patients of all types in trying situations and gives them outstanding care.”
