Flaget contributes to Sisters’ scholarship fund
Renames a new addition in honor of the Sisters
Downs added that Flaget Memorial Hospital plans to pay tribute to the Sisters by naming an upcoming addition to its campus the “Sisters of Charity of Nazareth Building.”
“It’s a way to honor them,” Downs said, noting that the Sisters helped launch Flaget Memorial Hospital in the 1950s.
“They do so much for the community,” she added. “They’re the ones that made our culture and gave us values.”
Coming into the celebration, Sisters of Charity of Nazareth President Sister Mary Elizabeth Miller said she didn’t expect such a generous donation or Flaget Memorial Hospital naming one of its buildings in their honor.
“It’s almost overwhelming,” she said. “We’re very much honored and we’re very much proud of Flaget and the work they do.”
