May 15, 2014 (Greenwich, CT) – On May 9 at its annual Employee Service Awards Dinner, Greenwich Hospital named Helen Backus, RN, the Marian Nowak Award winner. Each year at the annual appreciation event, the Hospital celebrates employees with extended service to the hospital, from five years and longer, in five-year increments.  The highlight of the event is the presentation of the prestigious Marian Nowak Award, given to an employee who embodies the best of Greenwich Hospital’s values. For Backus, the award is the culmination of 25 years as a member of the Greenwich Hospital family. 

The award was established in 1990 in memory Marian Nowak, a Holocaust survivor and Greenwich Hospital employee for 41 years, who exemplified the qualities of hard work, kindness, friendship, loyalty and humility.
