Each year at MidState Medical Center’s annual meeting an individual or group is selected for their contributions to the healthcare delivery system in the community. The Crystal Obelisk award has been given for over a decade and some of the community’s best and brightest have earned recognition. MidState is pleased name A. Lee Campione as the 2012 Crystal Obelisk Award recipient.
Campione exemplifies how the Meriden community and beyond can partner and collaborate with the health care system in ways that ensure it is an asset to all who live in the community. Her leadership and continued presence with the Greater Meriden Chamber of Commerce, the Meriden Economic and Development Corporation, and as a founder of Community Vision, a group that continues to work to connect health care to the community, make her a worthy and deserving recipient of the award. She knows that a “healthy” community is multi-dimensional, inclusive and dynamic.
The wife of the late Dr. Matthew Campione, she has taken her positive influence and commitment beyond her work in the community, serving also as a full-time mom to four daughters, nana to nine grandchildren and two great granddaughters. She has modeled for them, by her own example, the important responsibility they all have to take care of the communities in which they live, work and raise their families.
“I have loved this hospital all my life,” said Campione.
