St. Mary's Health System in Maine Receives Prestigious $100,000 Foster G. McGaw Prize for Excellence in Community Service

members; residential treatment homes for children and adolescents; and a school for children with emotional disabilities. St. Mary's also offers clinical services with sliding scale fees through a diverse network of 65 physicians, and provides a range of preventive and occupational medical services to more than 400 local employers and their employees.

"Mission is at the heart of everything St. Mary's Health System undertakes," said James Cassidy, president and CEO of St. Mary's. "We are proud of our efforts in the community -- including health screenings, our food pantry, our community gardening program, our housing initiative and our nutrition center. Each of these programs ties back to our mission as a Catholic health system, and support for this mission runs straight through our organization from line staff right up to our board."

Among other programs, St. Mary's was recognized for the following innovative community service initiatives:

-- The Neighborhood Housing Initiative - Recognizing the dire local need for healthy, affordable housing, St. Mary's led the development of a community housing project that has resulted in the construction of 12 affordable new homes for families who would otherwise not have had access to quality housing. In doing so, this initiative also served as a catalyst for housing investments in downtown Lewiston neighborhoods, which were in a severe state of physical and social deterioration.

-- The B Street Health Center - Since 2003, this full-service medical practice, located in the heart of a federally designated enterprise community, offers culturally appropriate, affordable behavioral medicine and dental services on a sliding scale to the area's poor and to its rapidly expanding immigrant community. Each month, the Center provides care to more than 525 patients, many of whom would not otherwise have had affordable access to health care.
