The Door County Medical Center Auxiliary will present its first Angel Award during this year’s Angel Ball, set for Oct. 8.
“We wanted to recognize someone who is a champion of health care in the Door County community,” said Lynda Szczepanik, chair of the 2021 Angel Ball. “Brian Stephens, president and CEO of Door County Medical Center, was the first person who came to our minds thanks to his tireless efforts during the ongoing pandemic. His leadership has helped ensure the safety of all Door County residents and visitors.”
Money raised through the Angel Ball provides scholarships for new Door County and Algoma high school graduates who are pursuing health care careers, earlier graduates who are enrolled in health care-related programs and Door County Medical Center employees who are continuing their health care education.
“When I was contacted and told that I was going to be honored as the first recipient of the Angel Award,” Stephens said, “I told them that I would humbly accept it as a way to recognize our caregivers, support staff and all of the wonderful people at Door County Medical Center.”
