Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital Executive Director Wins Award Children
Peggy Mangiarcina, Executive Director of the Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital was awarded The 2011 “Making Our Kids My Business Award” Friday morning.
Peggy has been instrumental in the health and well-being of children and families in the Spokane community for many years, beginning her work at Sacred Heart Medical Center in 1982. Since then Peggy has acted as Assistant Vice President of Patient Care Services and Director of Children’s Services. Peggy chaired the design committee for the Children’s Hospital and began her work as Executive Director in 2004.
Since assuming the position of Executive Director Peggy has broadened the scope of services by bringing specialists in every pediatric subspecialty including: cardiology, surgery, emergency, oncology, and state-of-the-art neonatal intensive care services. Many of these specialists may not have come to Spokane without the tireless efforts of Peggy Mangiarcina.
“I’m honored to receive this reward. Everyone can make a difference in a child’s life. It doesn’t matter your job, how much money you have or your position,” said Mangiarcina during her speech at The Fort Wright Mukogawa institute.
The pain and trauma caused by family violence are of deep concern to Peggy, who works to create partnerships between the Children’s Hospital and other community agencies. Peggy has served on numerous community boards including the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Partners with Families and Children, St. Anne’s Child and Family Center, and the United Way.
This work is a demonstration of Peggy’s concern for creating a healthy community in numerous ways.
