Crystal Run Healthcare is pleased to announce that Joan Patterson, RN, MSN, Director of Operations, Rock Hill, has been recognized among several “Wonder Women of Sullivan County” by the Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless.

In Ms. Patterson’s most recent effort to give back to the Federation, she organized a clothing drive across all Crystal Run Healthcare locations.

In addition to Ms. Patterson’s involvement with the Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless, she serves as a Board member of the Sullivan County Health Services’ Advisory Board and the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce. She is a proud graduate of Leadership Sullivan Class of 2014, sponsored by the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce, and supported by Crystal Run Healthcare.

“Ms. Patterson is a true advocate for our patients. She holds everyone around her to high standards of quality and service excellence, always looking to do better,” says Gaynor Rosenstein, MS, CMPE, Chief Clinical Operations Officer at Crystal Run Healthcare. “It is a rare day that she is not called upon to help a patient in need. She is kind and always willing to do all she can to make their day a little easier. Ms. Patterson is a guiding force, whether it is organizing CRHC events, rallying friends and colleagues to participate in Relay for Life or jumping into frozen lakes in the middle of winter to combat Alzheimer’s disease. She is always the first to volunteer and put her heart into whatever her cause may be.”
