On Monday, February 27, 2017 St. Charles Hospital marked its 110th anniversary with a mass in the Infant Jesus Chapel at St. Charles Hospital and a reception in the Hospital lobby. The event was held to recognize the Hospital's continued mission of compassionate care, which was set forth by the Hospital’s founding order, the Daughters of Wisdom, USA Province in 1907.

Delight in a musical video tour through the Hospital’s early history to the song Hallelujah originally written by Canadian singer Leonard Cohen to lyrics rewritten by St. Charles Hospital's Public Relations Director, Marilyn Fabbricante in commemoration of its 110th Anniversary.

There’s a lot of talent at St. Charles Hospital and it’s not just about medicine….You cannot see them in the video, (photo below) but the choir is comprised of hospital staff and directed by St. Charles Hospital's Grace Sparacino. The video was compiled and edited by Jennifer Semel, MD, Medical Director, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Hope is Born in Women's March in Washington, DC

(1/21/17) Millions of women checked into marches all around the country and the world on Saturday, creating a sea of human diversity in places where they gathered. Without any negative incidents reported, women of all ages, ethnicities and religions assembled peacefully to stand up and let their voices be heard for shared concerns: human rights, the environment and immigration. There they committed to being a part of a movement for the common good that will not end with this march.


Our Sr. Marie Chiodo, DW along with Sr. Anne Marie Gardiner, SSND participated in the Washington DC walk and reported back that the mood was ebullient, respectful and inspiring. With the air filled with hand crafted signs expressing a multitude of concerns, the peaceful demonstration united women throughout the world, and as Sister Marie expressed, “were a lesson in civics for our day…. The presence of so many young people gave me hope for our country. And all was done in a peaceful manner. Color, sexual identities and ethnicity did not matter. It was a witness to our unity. Anger did not prevail. Hope did.”
