Flaget Memorial Hospital officials honored the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth for their work in the community during a celebration last Thursday afternoon in the hospital’s serenity garden.

Flaget President Sue Downs presented the Sisters with a commemorative plaque and a $5,000 donation towards the Sisters’ scholarship program — Educating Young Women for a Better World.

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.”
