Congratulations to Betty MacDougall, SCN, for her decades of commitment to Our Lady of Peace (OLOP).   She retires this week and is the last SCN in ministry at OLOP.   Sister Betty has been recognized for her groundbreaking work to create a partnership with the Jefferson County Public Schools system in order to establish Peace Academy. This is a remarkable institution as it is a school within a hospital, so that children and adolescents receiving care at Peace are able to continue their studies and by doing so, it greatly aids in healing. Each year, as many as 3,500 students pass through the hallways of the school. Sister Betty will be recognized this week by co-workers as well as members of the SCN family for her dedication to this ministry, which was founded by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.   Our Lady of Peace is now a service of Jewish Hospital and St. Mary’s Healthcare.   It is one of the largest private, non-profit psychiatric hospitals in the country and offers treatment to patients with emotional/behavioral/psychiatric disorders and/or chemical dependencies.
