DALLAS TWP. — Dr. Susan Sordoni has been honored with the second-annual Misericordia University Excellence in Health Care Award, which recognizes a Misericordia alumnus who has made significant and exemplary contributions to health care. It is awarded to caregivers and those who have advanced the field through medical research, executive leadership, the healing arts or scientific discovery.

A 1968 Misericordia graduate, Sordoni was recognized for being the founder and volunteer at the Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) clinic in Wilkes-Barre. VIM is a full-service clinic that provides free medical, dental and behavioral health care to low-income patients in Luzerne County who have no access to public or private health insurance.

Sordoni was the honored guest Thursday at the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery, where Misericordia Misericordia is hosting “Arts in Healthcare,” a group art exhibition in conjunction with Misericordia’s 10th annual Health Care Symposium.
