Benko was described by a patient as “attentive, knowledgeable and empathetic –she went above and beyond to provide exceptional care.” Pippin was recognized for her “tireless work in initiating an insulin pilot program and for her extra efforts in ensuring that patients receive excellent care during the time that the hazardous drug room in Easton was closed for repairs.”
