FARMINGTON — Physical therapist Rebecca Gagnon-Pillsbury, MSPT, ATC, CLT, has been named Caregiver of the Year for Franklin Memorial Hospital, according to a press release by Gerald Cayer, executive vice president. Cayer made the announcement during a recent manager’s meeting, praising Gagnon-Pillsbury’s 17 years of service at FMH.

“This annual award honors a caregiver who on a daily basis demonstrates extraordinary commitment to the delivery of care to patients and their families,” said Cayer in the release. “Each hospital is allowed only one applicant to be considered for statewide recognition, so being nominated is truly an honor.”

Dr. Charles Hendricks, a surgeon at Mount Desert Island Hospital, whose humanitarian work includes providing surgical services to disadvantaged, under-served South American populations was selected as this year’s MHA Caregiver of the Year.
