Good Samaritan Hospital Honors Samaritan of the Month for the Satellites

July 30th, 2014

Christine Gabrielle was Good Samaritan Hospital’s Samaritan of the Month for the satellites in July. She has been a case worker with the Martin Luther King Jr., Community Health Center in Wyandanch since 2005 working with the HIV/AIDS population. She is especially committed to understanding the needs, concerns and challenges a diagnosis of HIV can present. Her empathetic approach is reflected in the trust and respect her patients give her. Ms. Gabrielle is bilingual which helps tremendously with her patient population. She holds a master’s degree in psychology and is currently working towards her second master’s degree in mental health counseling. One of her many responsibilities is outreach in the community. She resides in Wantagh.

Since 1999, Good Samaritan Hospital has recognized exemplary employees that consistently go above and beyond their assigned duties and live by the hospital mission to promote excellence in care and commit to those in need. Nominations are submitted for review to a committee from co-workers, supervisors and patients. Samaritans are surprised in their department with a bouquet of flowers. A Samaritan of the Month presentation is held at the hospital with their co-workers and family.
