Children's Hospital of Wisconsin was recognized as corporate friend of the year for its support of Aurora VNA's pediatric program.

"The relationship between Aurora VNA and Children's Hospital has been critical to the success of our pediatric programs," said Candace Hennessy, president of Aurora VNA.

"I would like to thank Children's for its longstanding support of our mission to meet the home care needs of children, from newborns to teenagers, who have chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, asthma and cystic fibrosis and who rely on Aurora VNA caregivers to help them stay at home and out of the hospital."

In addition to home infusion therapies, home medical equipment and transitional services, the Aurora VNA provides a variety of specialty programs, including pediatric hospice, to meet the individual needs of our patients and families.

Hennessy also stressed the role that community members play in supporting Aurora VNA's mission.

"Patient-centered care is at the heart of what we do each day as we enter families' homes. But we are not alone in our mission. We are fortunate to have friends, family members and volunteers who are an integral part of our team," Hennessy said.

Among those individuals honored were:

Norrie Daroga of Bayside received the Sarah Boyd Award, which is given to Aurora VNA's donor of the year in recognition of his philanthropic support to the organization. Sarah Boyd created the VNA to "give skilled nursing care and health instruction to the sick in their homes regardless of race, color, creed or ability to pay."

Anna Rios of Kenosha, who has worked tirelessly to meet the needs of her son, Manuel, was named care partner of the year. The award is given to a caregiver who has exemplified dedication, loyalty and skill in caring for their loved one

Dennis and Marjorie Pierce of Muskego were named volunteers of the year for their outstanding commitment to patients and families. The Pierces have provided home respite care as well as other duties for Aurora VNA hospice.

Retiring board member Jim DeWees of Brookfield also was honored for his service.

The Aurora Visiting Nurse Association of Wisconsin is a not-for-profit agency that has been committed to keeping people independent in their homes since 1907. The Aurora VNA is the most comprehensive source of home care services in eastern Wisconsin.
