Your story on Sister Patricia Vandenberg (Jan. 10, p. 16) did not fully represent her contributions to the ministry of healthcare and to the creation of Trinity Health, the system formed by the consolidation of Mercy Health Services, Farmington Hills, Mich., and Holy Cross Health System, South Bend, Ind.
Sister Pat has worked selflessly, exhibiting a personal commitment to our new health system. She has accomplished this in the spirit of furthering the mission of her congregation and advancing the strategic plans of Holy Cross Health System.
Such devotion is emblematic of healthcare chief executive officers who work in the interest of the healthcare ministry and the communities we serve, regardless of personal implications. We should applaud this devotion. Be assured that Sister Pat will continue to make significant contributions to healthcare in the future.
President and CEO
