Virginia Golden Honored with Third Age Achievement Award
Three members of the St. Peter’s Health Partners family, including St. Peter’s Hospital and Albany Memorial Hospital Chief Executive Officer Virginia Golden, received a Third Age Achievement Award from Senior Services of Albany.
Also honored with a Third Age Achievement Award were Reverend Kenneth J. Doyle, longtime pastor for the Parish of Mater Christi in Albany and a committee member on Mission Integration for St. Peter’s Health Partners, and Thomas R. Tyrrell, longtime insurance executive and current chairman of the St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation.
Held on May 19 at Wolferts Roost Country Club in Albany, the Third Age Achievement Awards ceremony pays tribute to Capital Region professionals who have made significant contributions to the community in their “third age” – or after the age of 60.
The award seeks to dispel the myth that getting older always means slowing down, and highlights the activities, achievements, and creativity of individuals over the age of 60, according to Senior Services of Albany.
“In her exemplary 46-year career at St. Peter’s Hospital, Virginia has developed a rich understanding of the health care industry – and our community – as a whole,” Senior Services of Albany said in honoring Golden. “More importantly, Virginia has demonstrated the knowledge, leadership, and vision to inspire physicians and staff to do their very best.”
Senior Services of Albany was founded in 1952 to serve the needs of the elderly and their caregivers in the greater Albany area. Since then, the agency has focused its mission on enhancing the quality of life and fostering independence for seniors in the Capital Region.
