St. Peter’s Health Partners Honored with Award from Siena College


Physicians often are defined as “heroes.” They heal wounds, repair broken bones and save lives. If you were to ask a physician how he feels about such titles, he would most likely tell you he was “just doing his job.”

Although it may be their jobs, when a hospital team becomes a great resource and ally for a university, their efforts do not go unnoticed.

Each year the Division of Student Affairs at Siena College in Loudonville, N.Y., recognizes a member of the staff or community partner for their outstanding service to their students and the Siena community. St. Peter’s Health Partners, Albany, N.Y., is the 2014 recipient of the Vice President for Student Affairs recognition award. This is the first time a healthcare provider is being recognized.

Samuel Bosco, MD, FACEP, the chief of emergency medicine, Celeste DesChamps, director of patient care services, and their team at St. Peter’s Hospital has been proactive and responsive in emergency situations, according to Maryellen Gilroy, vice president for student affairs at Siena College. She describes the team as helpful and a delight to work with.

“Our relationship with St. Peter’s has been tremendous,” said Gilroy. “The quality of care provided to our students has been outstanding. We are truly grateful for all of the attention and great care the entire emergency department gives to our students on a regular basis.”

The award was presented May 2 as part of the college’s annual Student Leadership and Involvement Awards Ceremony.

“The relationship built with Siena College was forged through the dedication and commitment to provide the best care to the community and students – and to ensure that in the event of an emergency, parents can rest assured knowing their children are in good hands,” explained Dr. Bosco. “Success is built on teamwork. This award is a testament to what a great team we have.”

In addition to his role at St. Peter’s Health Partners, Dr. Bosco is a partner of Emergency Medical Associates and Diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and a Diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners.
