Saint Mary’s Hospital 2011 Champion Dinner in Waterbury, Conn.

(9/12/11) — Webster Bank is pleased to once again be a sponsor of today’s the Saint Mary’s Hospital Champion Dinner, which will honor the Most Reverance Henry J. Mansell, D.D., Archbishop of Hartford.

The Champion Award is presented annually to an individual or institution with a history of outstanding service to the hospital and the community. The award was presented this year to Archbishop Mansell in recognition of his commitment to healthcare, and his exceptional leadership and commitment to Saint Mary’s Hospital.

Mansell spoke about his “great love for Saint Mary’s Hospital and Health System and all the people who make the miracle happen as they have for 100 years.” “We look to the people who make the difference,” the Archbishop said. “We see momentum going forward.”

Webster Chairman and CEO Jim Smith co-chaired the event with Dr. Paul F. Kelly. Webster Bank is a past Champion Award recipient.
