As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Angie DelVecchio has remained a respectful and caring employee since she began her career with MDI Hospital in 1997. Angie has said that MDI Hospital has been like a family to her over the years, and she couldn’t imagine being a provider anywhere else.

As the Quality and Safety guru, Barbara MacPike has seen it all throughout the years. Barbara always has a positive attitude and has remained determined and compassionate throughout this pandemic, selflessly taking on any challenge that she is handed.

For 26 years, Lauri Kandutsch has been an energetic, dedicated employee and friend to her co-workers. Throughout the years, Lauri’s resiliency has shown through, and she’s been a caring mentor for her staff when they’ve needed someone to talk to.
